Haunted house, fireworks in Albion

Last night is tonight so get out for a fright night

Ghost Ridge goes out with a bang tonight.

A fireworks display will put the exclamation point on the 2013 version of Maple Ridge’s community Halloween house, which has been open nightly since Friday.

The Timeline of Terror haunted house is once again open from 6-9 p.m., and the annual community fireworks are set to fire off at 7 p.m.

Organizers have received enough sponsorship to offer an impressive $10,000 light display.

It is held at the Albion Fairgrounds, at 23500-105th Avenue, off the Lougheed Highway.

The cost is $8 for the haunted house, and proceeds benefit local non-profit organizations whose members get involved in organizing the community event.

This Halloween the Maple Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club, the Invitius Alliance (LARP), the Ridge Meadows Bruins Rugby ladies team and the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Agricultural Association are the four groups assembling  and staffing Ghost Ridge.

Last year, the community clubs all received approximately $5,000 each.

There are also 61 high school students involved. They have been through auditions, and some have major roles, while others might help with makeup and costumes or food services.

The Lions club is also on hand, offering concessions to families that want to have their dinner at the fairgrounds.
