Downtown Alpharetta will be filled with ghost and other monsters as police officers and firefighters exchange uniforms for costumes for a community Haunted House open today and Saturday.
The Haunted House benefits the Alpharetta Police Athletic League (PAL), which provides tutoring, sports, fitness and life lessons to underprivileged youth.
- PAL Gym, 2 South Main St., (next to Alpharetta City Hall)
- Friday, Oct. 26, 7-10 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 27, 5-6 p.m., 7-10 p.m.
- Admission: $5 (under 6 free)
Concessions will be available for a nominal fee.
On Saturday, the event will begin at 5 p.m. Patrons may also try their luck at some challenging games. A Halloween costume contest for two different age groups will take place at 6 p.m. so patrons are encouraged to wear their cutest, scariest, or most original costumes for a chance to win cash prizes.
The haunted house will reopen on Saturday at 7 p.m. and remain open until 10 p.m.
All proceeds from the Haunted House will help support Alpharetta PAL and for use of a new Alpharetta PAL building. Alpharetta PAL is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit community based outreach organization created to provide a variety of services to the youth of North Fulton County while at the same time establishing a bond of mutual respect, understanding and trust with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.
