Haunted Village

Halloween at the CAE


From the very year it opened, the CAE has sponsored Halloween events for the entire family. Unlike traditional haunted houses, the aim was to bring the community together for a spooky, but not scary, festival where kids were safe pretend and the entire family could joined in on the fun. Halloweeners can roam about an expansive village where their imaginations take flight -- a place where they can learn the science behind magic and optical illusions -- while being entranced with the mysteries of Halloween.

And so Haunted Village was born. Each Halloween, one corner of the WCC campus gets transformed in an decorative village where visitors can roam and engage in various activities. Each Haunted Village features a Dr. Frankenstein Physics Lab of hands on science experiments, a planetarium show produced by the Imaginarium called Nightwalk, josting with knights on the lawn, a pumpkin carving patch, a custom contest, face painting, a storytelling corner, a monster movie theater and many other activities. The village gets elaborately decorated with large Halloween inflatables, luminaries, torch lanterns, a cemetery scene, colorful banners and many other attractions.
