The night the clowns were awakened
MEXICO -- River Valley Recreation will host the Killer Carn-Evil Halloween Walk from 7-10 p.m. this Friday and Saturday at the River Valley Recreation Center.
While last year's event was successful with more than 600 people viewing the props, organizer Kevin Gallant assured that the upcoming walk will be "way better than last year."
He said that while last year's event was put together last minute, this time they've been working better than a month for this. "We're trying to target the middle school and high school crowd with this event."
For the $5 fee, the tour guides will lead a group for the 15- to 20-minute walk to 15 or more props on two different floors, utilizing most of the center.
Some 50 people volunteered their efforts for the night the clowns were awakened, but Gallant would like to have 15 to 20 more people to help out as well. If you'd like to volunteer for this, do so by Thursday by contacting Kevin Gallant at 357-4444.
Gallant noted they appreciate the donations made from businesses for materials, copies and posters to promote the event.
Concessions will also be available. All proceeds will benefit recreation programs.
