The Boys & Girls Club of Red Deer and District is pleased to announce two replacement fundraising events after the loss of the high-profile Zed Haunted House annual scarefest.

ZED Fright Night Film Series, Presented by Border Paving

Dates: Friday, October 23; Saturday, October 24; Friday, October 30; and Saturday, October 31, 2020

Join Boys & Girls Club of Red Deer and District as we celebrate the frightful season in style – with 5 feature films sure to stir up your spooky side. This event is a drive-in movie series featuring old and new films of fright. Beware! Our Halloween Haunts will fright throughout the night (characters will roam between cars during the drive-in opening and pre-show).

Films will be screened by On The Mark Productions in association with Bulldog Driver Training, at Westerner Park’s North West parking lot. General admission first-come-first-park tickets are $40 per carload (75 cars total), with limited Front Row Seating (First 2 rows, 25 cars total) at $50 per carload. Showtimes are 7:30pm, with the drive-in open an hour before. A special midnight madness showing of the 2018 thriller Halloween is also screening for those looking to up the scare factor on Halloween night.

Tickets can be purchased online at bgcreddeer.ticketleap.com, with general admission tickets being available at each screening.

This event is a poker run for adults around the city of Red Deer. Participants travel to a series of checkpoints located at various businesses throughout Red Deer. Collect a card from 7 checkpoints to make the best 5-card poker hand. Can you win the Hand of the Howl? Prizes will be awarded for the top 5 poker hands, in addition to our Grand Prize Draw of a WestJet flight voucher! At each checkpoint “Trick or Treat” stops will also be available, making this a family-friendly event!

Participants can register for $30/adult participant, which includes their first poker hand, and purchase up to 5 additional poker hands at $20/each. (Poker hands only available to participants 18+ per AGLC guidelines.) Participants can register online at bgcreddeer.ticketleap.com.

Event registration opens at 10:00am at the North West Parking Lot at Westerner Park, with the poker run open from 11:00am until 4:00pm. All prizes will be announced through the Zed Haunted House and Boys & Girls Club of Red Deer and District Facebook pages live at 5:00pm.
