Halloween Eve was spooky, scary and fun in Carbon. Volunteers in the village west of Drumheller decided to turn the municipal walking path into a Path of Fear.
 
"We did the Haunted Church last year (but) we weren't able to get an indoor building, the weather was great so we decided to do the path, which was actually really fun," said Thomas Laffin, who helped to put the whole thing together. "This looks like it's going to be a yearly event; we don't know yet if it's going to be an indoor or outdoor event."
 
"We went and got a lot of cobwebs, a lot of caution tape, and it just worked out the way the path was; there were lots of little hiding spots where it wasn't the forest area: then all we really had to do was just decorate the forest areas and throw some people in those areas."
 
They ran the Path of Fear on Sunday evening, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. to get the largest number of participants possible. However, there's one that Laffin may not want to see again.
 
"My mask didn't really fit, I couldn't really see out of it, I just heard their voices and so I jumped out, and I guess I jumped out a little too far and got a little too close, and sure enough, I took a fist right to the face," he related. "It was hilarious: she felt bad, but it was all good and I just kept laughing about it."
 
Laffin figures between 95 and 100 people, many of them from Drumheller, took in Carbon's Path of Fear.
