CORNWALL – Another spooky tradition is gearing up for hundreds of visitors tonight (Wednesday).

Aline Gareau Hebert and her partner, Ron Piette, will have their Haunted Backyards open to the public from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. for Halloween night.

The free scary spectacle, which is open to all ages, is at 2201 Power Dam Drive, Unit 14, which is on Vincent Massey Drive between Riverside Chrysler and Power Dam Drive.

Hebert is expecting over 2,000 people to come this year for the Halloween Morbid Haunt and Maze – an event that started five years ago with around 500 people.

The themed maze has been added this year and neighbours have helped by allowing their property to be part of the fun.
