MainStreet DeLand Association and The Rotary Club of DeLand have partnered to create their first-ever haunted house located in heart of its historic, award-winning Downtown District.
Haunted Hollow DeLand will transform Artisan Alley Garage in Downtown DeLand into a den full of fear and fright. Featuring a “mild” side for children under the age of 10 and a “wild” side designed for those who dare to be scared, the event will run from Wednesday, October 23 to Thursday, October 31. Scaring hours will vary by night: 6 to 10 p.m. on weeknights, 6 to 11 p.m. on weekends and 6 p.m. to midnight on Halloween night.
Staffed by community volunteer scare actors, cost of entry is $10 and all proceeds will benefit The Rotary Club of DeLand and MainStreet DeLand Association, which are both not-for-profit organizations.
Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance via www.hauntedhollowdeland.com.
“What excites me most about this event is how so many people have jumped in to help,” said Melisa Reed, organizer and past president of MainStreet DeLand Association. “From construction materials, to volunteers, to connecting with Dynamic Design International who has done set work for theme parks and nationally recognized haunts, this experience shows just how strong our community is.”
“The partnership between our Rotary Club and MainStreet is an unparalleled example of two great organizations coming together for one great cause,” said Brittany Gløerson, event organizer and incoming president of The Rotary Club of DeLand. “We have worked tirelessly to bring the best family experience to our Downtown community this Halloween Season.”
