It’s that time of year again, when the weather becomes cooler, the leaves change colors and we all dress up in costumes and ask for free candy! Yep, it’s almost Halloween time and the city of Corona is the place to be for all kinds of family fun activities!
Christina Hanskat of Corona, California says “I love Halloween! My daughter loves to dress up and I can’t wait to take her to the city of Corona Halloween events!”
Lucky InnerCircleCorona.com readers have a chance to get all the know-how of the Halloween happenings!
Check out what is happening in the city of Corona:
One of the oldest original houses in Corona will turn into the creepiest place in the Inland Empire from October 27th until the 31st. Known as the Heritage Haunt, the scare factor will be at an all time high with original sets, special effects and creepy actors. Larry McCauley is responsible for all the creepy details that will scare and delight you at the Heritage Haunt. He is known for his work at Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures, Miramax, Knott’s Berry Farm, Mattel and Disney! Karen Grayer is the Heritage Haunt event coordinator and she says “This year we will be upping the fear-factor with all new original sets and scare-tactics,” “What you find here will be unique to the Heritage Haunt. If you’ve just come from Knott’s Scary Farm, you still won’t be ready for anything that we’ve got.”
Tickets will be on sale in the Heritage museum or pre-sale online. Log on to Corona Heritage (link with http://www.coronaheritage.org) for more details.
