The ghostly voice intones, "It's too late!"

And it is...too late. The Daly Mansion Preservation Trust has sold out their Friday Haunted Mansion event. The evening is only offered every other year and the spaces filled up last week, according to Executive Director April Johnson.

The evening will include a Harvest Dinner, a costume contest, ghost hunting, tours of the creepy basement, a haunted hayride and other ghoulish entertainment including classic spooky movies.

Those who were lucky enough to grab their $60 tickets will be roaming around the mansion until about 2 a.m. Saturday morning. Of course, we don't know who or what else will be roaming around the darkened corridors, too.

The Haunted Mansion trades off each year with the popular Daly Mansion Murder Mystery Dinner, which is performed by members of the Hamilton Players theater group. The 2013 dinner is already being planned.
