14th Annual Cemetery Tour

with Deborah Chapman on October 13

Join R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum and Curator Deborah Chapman on a very special tour of the old section of the Mt. Ida Cemetery.  Featuring Chapman's personal favourite list of characters.  Stories of love, heartbreak, joy and tragedy are told on one of the prettiest knolls in Salmon Arm.  Cost is $10.00 per person and is limited to 35 special ticket holders.  To reserve your tickets, please call the Village at 250-832-5243.



What are you doing October 19 and 20?  If you are looking for a truly screaming good time, Halloween fun awaits you at R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum for the 24th Annual “Spooktacular”

As dusk falls on the Village, strange shadows and ghostly figures appear as the Spooktacular magic commences.  Little ghouls can brave the not-so-scary “Pumpkin Patch Path” full of rhymes, games and treats or visit Mt Ida Church and enjoy just the right amount of fright with not so scary stories from “Spooky Tales of Halloween”

Visit the Mystical Fortune Teller, beware she may know all your secrets, predict your future or call the spirits to revel what your future holds.  If you are feeling a bit under the weather, an appointment with the Menacing Mad Scientist and a diagnosis in his electric chair is sure to make you scream.  If amusements are what you seek, test your skills at games of chance at the “Hocus Pocus Midway”.

Don’t let your guard down! If you venture to far and cross the bridge of “Last Hope” you will find yourself on “Shady Lane”.   Chills, thrills and villains await you as you prowl the boardwalk of the Montebello Building.  Shops have transformed into blood curdling, bone chilling shops of horror.   Mayhem awaits you; this is only for the brave of heart.

Keep up your pace on a hair-raising adventure through the Haunted House.  Do you think you are fearless enough to venture to the Spook Trail?  There are haunts around every corner stalking you in the forest where zombies and phantoms are waiting - you never know what unearthly magic beckons your fate and where the howling may lead you.  You have been warned!

When you’re ready for a break from all the horrifying thrills, enjoy hot dogs, hot chocolate and popcorn by the fire or rest your brooms and visit the “RIP Coloring Room” where you can have your face painted, make a fun “Haney” craft or colour a picture to take home.  You never know what you might unearth at Spooktacular.

Mark the 24th Annual Spooktacular on your calendar - this is one after-dark Halloween event that you do not want to miss! For more information call 250-832-5243.  Ghouls and Ghosts under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Admission at the gate is $8.00 per person and the 4 years and under ghouls and ghosts are free. 

Gates open at 5:00pm for this family fun haunting event. Scary & not so scary amusements are open until 8:30 pm.
