With Halloween just around the corner, the city of Leavenworth and a high school theater class are teaming up again for the Haunted Depot.

The event is scheduled for 5-10 p.m. Saturday at the Riverfront Community Center, 123 S. Esplanade St. The Riverfront Community Center is located in a building that once served as a train depot.

Nancy Baker, recreation supervisor for the city, said the event will include haunted house tours as well as activities for children.

Baker said students from Leavenworth High School’s Repertory Theater class will be staging the haunted house tours. The tours will take place around the Riverfront Community Center’s indoor walking track.

The students will be offering a Scaredy Cat tour from 5-6:30 p.m. Baker said this tour is designed for children.

A festival also will be taking place inside the community center’s gymnasium from 5-6:30 p.m.

“Kids can come in and go trick-or-treating,” Baker said.

She said volunteers will be handing out candy.

Volunteers also will be operating games and other activities for children. Baker said activities will include bounce houses and face painting.

“We’ll have food, we’ll have some concessions going and music,” she said.

Admission is $7 for the festival and Scaredy Cat tour. Admission is $2 for people who only want to attend the festival. Admission is free for children who are 2 years of age or younger from 5-6:30 p.m.

From 7-10 p.m., the high school students will offer the Nightmare on Esplanade Street tour, which is designed to be a scarier tour.

Admission to this tour is $5 per person.

Last year was the inaugural year for the Haunted Depot.

Baker said more than 900 tickets were sold for last year’s event.

“It was a huge success,” she said.
