|Family Fright Night returns to Timberline posted on 10/01/2018|
While Timberline Lodge famously played a role as the
Overlook Hotel in the classic movie, “The Shining,” Timberline’s Director of
Marketing & PR, John Burton, noted that there aren’t any ghost stories or
the like surrounding its history.
But that won’t stop the lodge from hosting the annual Family
Fright Night, an event featuring Halloween activities starting at 6 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 27.
“It’s the alternative to a typical house-to-house
experience,” Burton said. “You come up to the Lodge and get it all.”
That includes many free activities such as scavenger hunt,
trick or treating, candied apples, decorating cookies, a pumpkin contest, a
costume contest, ghost stories for children, other stories for teens and adults
and a special late-night screening of “The Shining.”
Zombie laser tag, with time slots for hotel guests only and
for the public, will also be available for $10 per person.
The event has been going on for years, Burton noted, adding
that many participants go to all ends for it.
“Parents get into it, they dress up,” he said. “You can be
walking around the halls and there’s people in costumes everywhere. It’s good,
clean, Halloween fun.”
