CORNER BROOK — It may be a new building, but Corner Brook’s city hall is going to be a haunted site, at least for the rest of this month.
The third annual Harbour Haunt was in jeopardy when the three organizations that benefit from running the haunted house fundraiser could not find a space to hold it this year.
At Monday night’s public city council meeting, the City of Corner Brook agreed to offer the free use of the undeveloped space on the ground floor of the new city hall building to the groups for the duration of the month of October.
The Harbour Haunt is a major fundraiser for Easter Seals, the Humber Community YMCA and the Community Youth Network.
In the past, it has taken about a week to build the ghoulish maze that is usually open to the public for the two weeks leading up to Halloween.
Previous events have seen between 1,500 and 2,000 visitors and raised as much as $15,000 for the three organizations.
