Feeling courageous? Eastern Ontario’s largest haunted fortress is ready for you to visit during Fort Fright!

Fort Henry has a Halloween event that will leave you shaking! Lots of spooky creatures and monsters will be waiting for you at Fort Fright until October 31, 2012, from 6 to 10 pm (last ticket sold at 9:30 pm). General admission is $15.

If you want to make this experience even more wild, then consider an even more terrifying experience – a haunted overnight stay in Fort Henry. Prices begin at $120, maximum two persons.

This historic location offers visitors the opportunity to spend a night in one of its limestone casemates. With rooms for couples, families and groups it’s sure to be a night you will never forget. Be warned though: According to the Fort Henry website, “These accommodations are very rustic and are meant to offer you a period interpretation of life at an 1860’s military site and do not have the amenities of a modern hotel facility. Each room will have limited electrical access. Cellular telephone service can be impacted by the thick limestone walls.” Recommends Kingston Because Don Cherry Does

How’s this for an endorsement: Kingston, Ontario is one of the greatest cities in Canada because legendary coach and host of CBC’s “Coach’s Corner” segment on “Hockey Night in Canada” Don Cherry says it is. Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi had trailed Cherry during a walk of his favourite places in his hometown. Cherry spoke about his own accounts of growing up in Kingston during a tour and “sang the praises” of his hometown.

Brijbassi:After the Sir John A. Macdonald Bicentennial Commission asked Cherry to lead a walk through Kingston, hockey’s most famous commentator didn’t hesitate. He joined performers from the Salon Acting Company and Arthur Milnes, the Sir John A. 2015 commissioner, in leading a group of 70 people through the streets of his hometown.Read and see more here.
