“I know they’re not real,” then she said, “you can’t scare me,” while walking through the candy shop. Kudos to this little brave person. You brought smiles to our faces!
Every year on the Saturday evening before Halloween, a small portion of Sheppard’s Bush is transformed into Aurora’s Haunted Forest. A fun Aurora event that brings thousands to wander through spooky trails and to enjoy fun activities. The warm bonfire is always a treat, after all it’s October. Believe it or not this year was our first encounter with snow during the event. The showcase of jack o’lanterns was spectacular. It is also an evening when the nocturnal creatures temporarily depart the ‘haunted‘ area. Thousands of footstep sounds, creepy screams, running generators – probably terrorizing for local animals. But the squirrels know better not to abandon their hidden nuts.
Most forests are naturally spooky, I have personally seen a few. They are even more creepy when one is lost. Around the world there are haunted forests for real. They have creepy stories and tales. As far as I’m aware, our Sheppard’s Bush is not known as a real haunted forest. It’s a friendly trail visited and enjoyed by many people on regular days.
“I don’t believe my house was haunted. I think I had an overactive imagination, and I was so convinced that those around me became convinced, too.” – Ryan Gosling
Well, we are always excited to be back every year and walk through the hair-raising trail full of zombies. Jason you were back!!!
