It is with deep disappointment and sadness to share that the 2023 Haunted Manson Haunted House Experience is canceled. All other Haunted Manson activities will continue as planned.

What happened?

The haunted house has operated successfully for the past two years, following the guidelines originally given by Chelan County. Unfortunately, the Fire Marshal informed us of new guidelines for construction with only two weeks until opening night, making the Haunted House impossible to produce this year.

The guideline requiring that there is no cover on the "house," even something temporary like a tarp or having it raised off the bins, makes the operation of the Haunted House impossible.

Since darkness is a crucial element to many of the Haunted House's special effects, and we cannot protect it from the elements without cover, we are forced to cancel the Haunted House. 

What's next?

While this is a devastating blow to our hardworking group of volunteers and the Manson community, we have a great new event planned!

Mark your calendar for a Haunted Manson Block Party on Saturday, October 28th. This will include food trucks, vendors, a Pumpkin Walk for kids, a Zombie Dash, a DJ dance party, and a live auction happening in Downtown Manson.
