The Bellevue Underground Mine is preparing for a spooky night on Halloween.

The mine will be putting on the Halloween Howler on October 31st from 3pm to midnight.

Manager, Brandy Gregory, says this is her first time running the event but her experiences in the past made her ready to put the howler on.
“This will be the first time I've run it but I've been through it at least a half dozen times. I knew some of the previous people who put it on and did phenomenal jobs. I absolutely love Halloween and I said we have to make it bigger. Go big or go home. We decided we wanted to bring in as many people as possible and scare the heck out of them.”

Gregory says there are lots of different plans in the works for the evening.

“The gift shop will be set up like a witches shop. We're going to have sensory tables and a photo booth as well. The mine will be set up so that there's a way in and a way out. We are actually going to have the entire thing set up like a giant underground haunted mine. There's going to be jump scarers, monsters and a fog machine. We're going all out. I'm a bit of a Halloween junkie.”

According to Gregory, younger kids will be able to enjoy the Howler for a few hours before the scary level increases after dark.

“We're hoping to have people of all ages. We're doing a smaller and more PG scare from about 3:00pm to 6:00pm. Then after dark is when the scary stuff comes out.”

Visitors will also receive a possible discount for the evening.

“We will have special rates for that evening. We're giving a discount to anyone who comes in a costume. Normal rates apply to anyone not in costume, youth would be $12, seniors $15 and adults $20 if they're not in costume. If they're in costume, its $15 for an adult, and $10 for youth or seniors. There will also be a bit of a costume contest. Whoever has the best costume will get in for free.”

Gregory says there will be candy bags available for kids and hot chocolate and coffee is being donated by Tim Hortons as well.

Gregory also wants to thank all the sponsors and helpers who made this night possible.

“A big thanks to all of the sponsors and helpers with this. Riversdale Resources, Teck, AHRF, Rinaldi Welding, Reimer Construction, Blairmore Lions, the municipality, Cox Electric, Tuck Trucking, the Pass Herald and Drain Brothers as well. All of them were big helps in having this happen. We got really lucky. We got some fantastic sponsorships.”
