Activity No. 4704.221
The Old Firehouse is transforming the inside of the center into the spookiest, scariest, walk-through experience in McLean. The House of Terror will be divided into two time slots:
• No Scares 5–7 p.m.: Participants can walk through the lighted path and view our actors and actresses with no jumps, scares or fears.
• All Scares 7:30–10 p.m.: The effects are on, the lights are off, and the actors and actresses are out of sight and ready to surprise.
Trunk or Treat
Saturday, Oct. 30, 6–9 p.m.
Free for kids of all ages; preregistration is not required.
If the House of Terror isn’t your thing, no worries! Outside, the OFC's Trunk or Treat will have some music, fun and themed vehicles with Halloween candy to share while supplies last.
