HellsGate Haunted House in Lockport will host its annual family friendly event Sunday.

The Disabled Patriot Fund’s fourth annual trick-or-treat fundraiser will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 27 for kids of all ages. According to the news release, the event will be a “lights on, no scare adventure for the whole family.”

The event will feature trick-or-treating through the attraction’s house and the nearby woods with no scary monsters. There also will be a best costume contest for adults and kids at 2:30 p.m., face painting, inflatables and more.

To enter, children 5 and younger will cost $5 each, and those 6 and older will cost $10 each.

HellsGate is a widely recognized horror attraction owned and operated by the same company that runs the award-winning Statesville Haunted Prison. Usually HellsGate provides a “fully immersive haunted experience” for patrons older than 12 throughout October, according to its website.
