This hapless victim discovers that "Spiders from Space" have taken over the Daly Mansion's Haunted Hayride this Halloween.

Spiders of all sizes are the main attractions of this year's Daly Mansion fundraiser. Last year's two-night scare-fest was well received. This year's event will be Halloween weekend - Friday October 30 and Saturday October 31. Dress for the weather.

Tickets will be available at the web, ... er... rather, gate. After a short walk, victims (excuse me, that should be "participants") will climb aboard wagons and tractors will pull them around the historic building northeast of Hamilton. Portions of the grounds will be turned into nightmare scenes with a spine-tingly sense of humor thrown in.

More details are coming - including what happens to people who are bitten by the space spiders. It's not pretty.
