Local haunted house will be donating to food bank

Looking for a scare?

The fourth annual Grenfell Road Haunted House is starting on Friday, Oct. 25, and will continue until Halloween.

Since the creation of the full haunted house in 2016, owner of the residence Paul Coxe has had thousands of visitors to the property.

"The first year we had 800 people go through and last year we had 4,000, so we're looking forward to more this year," said Clarence Johnson, Coxe's close friend and assistant producer.

Visitors can expect to see zombies and clowns among a variety of other displays at 945 Grenfell Rd.

"What we have done is created some non-scary times so that people can walk through the haunted house and see how we have set it up without having people jump out and scare you whereas the scary part...well there's no end to people frightening you," said Johnson.

Admission to the haunted house is free, but cash and food donations are encouraged, to benefit the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

Last year's haunted house raised cash and food to the equivalent of $13,000.

Unfortunately in 2018, Coxe was diagnosed with a rare and chronic autoimmune disease but despite his declining health, Coxe is determined to continue the haunted house tradition.
