Everyone knows about the local Halloween events going on around the SouthCoast. However, how many of them are run, in part, by kids?

There is a haunted house going on in the basement of 244 Dartmouth St. in New Bedford, and kids are helping to put it together. But don’t let that fool you. It’s still really creepy. Beth Fauteux told us that she’s a guide with her 10-year-old daughter and did a run-through with her the other night. They had to try multiple times because they kept getting scared.

There are events upstairs for the little ones. Rock out at the glow in the dark dance party, participate in Halloween themed arts and crafts, or treat yourself to a festive snack.

This Haunted House will run on Friday, October 19 from 7 to 10 pm, Saturday, October 20 from 6 to 10 pm, and Sunday, October 21 from 4:30 to 8 pm. Just $5 for entry to all of the events. A great local event at a decent price.
