The Mini-Monster Bash is cancelled in Stony Plain due to COVID-19 but the Town has created a new family friendly event in its place.

According to a press release published Tuesday community members are advised to get out and about in order to find miniature haunted houses that have been placed as part of a spooky scavenger hunt that can be enjoyed from now until the Halloween weekend coming up.

Clues and updates about locations will be daily on the Town website and those who find a house are then advised to bring it into the Town office in order to claim a prize. There are no age restrictions, but minors must be joined by a parent or guardian over 18 if claiming a win.

“A lot of events and programs have been cancelled this year,” Tevra Graham, Community Services coordinator said. “It has been tough to stay positive with everything going on. We wanted to come up with a fun and safe event that would get everyone into the Halloween spirit.”

Ghosts, ghouls and gremlins are reminded to stay safe while joining the hunt for five haunted houses and to practice social distancing. There are no tricks involved in the process but those who are lucky enough to find themselves winners will discover they have received some treats.
