The Daly Mansion Haunted Hayride Friday and Saturday, October 25 and 26, managed to avoid the weather cold snap that hit the Bitterroot Valley. Hundreds of riders were taken on a loop around the Daly Mansion, visiting scenes with Pennywise, Bettlejuice, the Fatal Flying Freddy, a surprising Bearded Lady, some captive human victims and a short but scary funhouse.

The annual event raised money for operation costs of the mansion, which is now transitioning into another big event - the Holly Jolly Craft Show this weekend, with all three floors of the classic building filled with artisans and vendors offering unique items for the Christmas holidays. The hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, November 1 through November 3. Hattie's Kitchen will be offering lunch - $9 for the taco soup lunch deal and $8 for the chicken salad sandwich lunch deal.
