Family Fright fills Fort

At the Family Fright event at the Fort Langley National Historic Site, Jeannie Savard put a pink Batgirl facepaint on Anja Leber, who was turning five last weekend.

The Fort was decked out for Halloween on Oct. 25 and 26, with crafts tables set up for children such as Madison Savard, 11.

In the Servants Quarters building, (lower right) fort interpreter Celine Ahodekon admitted to being a little bit scared by some of the rubber rats, eyeballs, and other scares added to create a small haunted house for the older kids.

The annual Family Fright included a magic show and a pirate ship mocked up inside the Fort. 

Also taking place this fall was the Fort’s annual Grave Tales tours, in which guides lead people around the village and through the local historic cemetery, sharing true tales from history and reports of ghostly encounters.
