On October 25th& 26th, Friday and Saturday from 7-10pm, North San Juan’s Ridge Café will be transformed into a hair-raising House of Horrors. A group of dedicated Grizzly Hill students have been working with paraprofessional & visual art teacher Kacy Matty (pictured at left) to create a Haunted House for those who dare to “take a terrifying journey down the river of death, through the bones of the undead and steaming cauldrons of wicked witches.” There will also be an Art Auction of Grizzly Hill students’ acrylic paintings on Saturday from 5 to 7 pm. The Ridge Café will remain open for business during its regular hours, as well as serving sweet treats and beverages during the Art Auction and Haunted House.

Kacy explained, “I wanted to get the kids some exposure for their art work in the community. We had already done the NSJ Post Office so I wanted to do something a little more mainstream in a community business. I wasn’t sure if the kids were going downtown on Halloween and I wanted to create a North San Juan event that would bring the community and children together for Halloween. I thought the Haunted House and the Art Show would satisfy people’s desire to have an event with the kids downtown. I’m so delighted about how the community has stepped up and helped us out. The hard work and dedication of Mike and Abby and their crew at the Ridge Café is what is making this awesome event possible.” Sweetland Garden Mercantile, Indian Valley Outpost, and the Grizzly Hill School PTC have also generously contributed to this spooky event.
