The Daly Mansion has been a Halloween hotspot this year.

Last weekend, the sold-out Murder Mystery dinner intrigued the guests Friday and Saturday. Wednesday night, October 28, a ghost investigation was held overnight, and this weekend, October 30 and 31, the second annual Haunted Hayride is scheduled.

The theme for the hayride is "Spiders from Space," with huge extraterrestrial arachnids infesting the mansion grounds, along with an assortment of ghouls and zombies.

The event starts at 7 p.m. each evening and includes a short walk through a "haunted house" structure. Following that, the participants will hop on a wagon for a spooky ride around the mansion, into spider domains. The hayrides will start from the mansion parking lot.

The admission is only $5. Refreshments will be sold. And there are strobe lights being used throughout the displays. The event is not recommended for children under age 12.

Promotional consideration and sponsorships have been provided by KLYQ Radio and by Berkshire Hathaway Montana Properties Hamilton agents.
