There will be plenty of excitement for horror seekers this Halloween.
On Tuesday evening, several local organizations launched their Halloween Carnival and Haunted House at the Abe Montoya Recreation Center.
But don’t worry — there is still today to participate in the fun at the recreation center as from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. there will be plenty of games for children, a concession stand, costume contest and face painting. There is no cost to attend; however, tickets for games cost 25 cents each, and entrance to the haunted house is $2 adults and $1 for children. Organizations helping with this event include the Elks Lodge 408 Drug Awareness Youth Program that is presenting the haunted house and providing many of the carnival prizes. Other organizations include Samaritan House, the chamber of commerce, Amistad y Resolana, Lady Diamond and Robertson High School cheerleaders, NMHU Women’s Basketball and softball teams, and the Las Vegas Dollies.
Another haunted house is at the Plaza Hotel basement. Cost is $5 adults and $3 children. It is open from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. today, Thursday and Friday.
An interactive haunted house is taking place from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. today, Thursday and Friday at the NMHU music building The cost is $8 adults and $5 children 12 and younger, but organizers caution child participation due to strong language and intense situations due to the house being interactive with laser tag guns shooting zombies.
