The House of Horrors in the Bemiston Recreation Center will be returning for a second year, from 7 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 25, 26, 30 and 31, as well as Nov. 1. They will also reopen Nov. 2 from 2 to 5 p.m., with all proceeds going to benefit Relay for Life.
This year’s House of Horrors is being put on with the cooperation of the city of Talladega and the Greater Talladega Area Chamber of Commerce. Admission is $5 per person, with volunteers getting one free admission.
The theme of this year’s house is classic horror movies, which Brown admits vary depending on the age of the person choosing the classics.
Many of the villains included in this year’s house remain under wraps, but Brown did say this year will feature a “Children of the Corn corn maze (not maize), possibly featuring “Malachi running around in there somewhere,” she said.
The other confirmed event will be the “Psycho Hallway,” which Brown said is being custom built for the occasion.
“There’s no telling what you’ll see in there,” she said.
Of course, Halloween in Talladega would not be complete without trick or treating on the square, which will be back this year.
Trick or treating will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m., with volunteers dressed in accordance with this year’s theme. Local businesses are also encouraged to sign on to distribute candy.
“We just ask that it be family friendly and that there’s lots of candy to go around,” she said. “The ACT plans to hand out at least 4,000 pieces of candy this year.”
There will also be a live radio broadcast from 105.9.
“We had more than 200 people last year, and we’re hoping to double or maybe triple that this year,” she said.
