AmericInn seeks businesses, organizations, families to sponsor Haunted Hallway rooms

AmericInn Lodge and Suites in Pequot Lakes/Jenkins is looking for participants to sponsor a room for its eighth annual Haunted Hallway from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.

This will give kids ages 12 and younger a chance to have a warm and safe environment on Halloween.

Each participant will be able to decorate the room as he or she would like and hand out candy or any promotional items.

There will be games for kids in the meeting room as well as hay rides.

Admission is $2 per child and all proceeds go to the local Christmas for Kids program. Each child also gets a free swim pass.

Last year more than 600 kids went through the rooms.

Cost is $50 per business and participating businesses will get mentioned as being a sponsor in newspaper ads and flyers. Each participant also gets a gift certificate for a free night’s stay.

There is no charge for non-profit organizations.

Deadline to sign up is Oct. 11. Contact Rebecca at 568-8400 or
