MONTREAL, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - EEEEEEEEEEEEEE! The scariest haunted house in Quebec this Halloween will be located at 1263 Boul. Jolibourg in Laval, next to Uniprix Pharmacie Guylaine Lefebvre. Tom Jonas is a confirmed Halloween fanatic and for the 6th year in a row is putting together his annual haunted house decked out with all kinds of gory, gruesome and ghastly Halloween decorations guaranteed to give you the heebie jeebies. The displays can be viewed starting on Tuesday October 29 culminating on Thursday October 31, the day of the dead. (open Tue/Wed/Thurs from 4-10PM)
Of course there will be ghosts, goblins and ghouls, but there will also be plenty of other delights including a realistic skeleton and a coffin. Watch where you walk! You don't want to step in the toxic waste spill and you might not want to loiter near the jail where the inmates might getcha! Last year, 2500 people were spooked out by Tom's ghoulish exhibits.
"I just love Halloween and special effects, I start preparing for the big day in June," says Mr. Jonas. "At heart, I guess, I am still a big kid. This year I am once again partnering with wonderful establishments. Marché Métro Plus Perrier & Martel in Laval are back, supplying candy and chips for the 700 kids we expect to drop by. Crayola Canada is once more generously supplying coloring and activity pads for all of the trick or treaters." On Halloween night, at the haunted house, Vans will be giving out 100 pairs of running shoes to the first 100 donors of 50$ or more. Many other sponsors are joining in this year to give out extra goodies!!
There is no entry fee but Mr. Jonas accepts free-will donations on site or online to benefit The Montreal Children's Hospital of the MUHC. This year the goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000.00 to purchase infant scales for the tiniest babies, vital for determining accurate dosages of medication, and finger pulse oximeters to painlessly register an infant's oxygen levels.
