Huble hosting Thanksgiving

The last weekend of the regular season at Huble Homestead will end with a Thanksgiving celebration Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The fall colours will be out in full force on the beautiful riverfront property where guests are invited to join in traditional fun like bobbing for apples, scarecrow making and autumn crafts.

"Get out of the house, away from the turkey and get a little fresh air," Krystal Leason, executive director of the Huble Homestead Giscome Portage Society, said. "It'll be one of the last nice weekends of the year and it'll be great to do something with your family that's not poultry related."

Guests can learn how pioneers prepare for winter with heritage demonstrations like butter and ice cream making and black smithing.

Visitors can get a guided tour and see the building exhibits.

"And there will be some games and races in the field," Leason said.

There will be a 10 per cent off sale at the General Store for all items except for food.

And besides the usual concession items of hot dogs and hamburgers there will be a soup and other fall items available.

The Halloween Spooktacular will be the last event before Huble Homestead closes for the season. It will be held Oct. 25 and 26 from 3 to 8 p.m.

The main event is a spine tingling night event on the grounds of Huble Homestead that's sure to test visitors' bravery. This is a bone-chilling, hair-raising event geared for those who are looking for something a little different. At the same time there's a family-friendly option at the Welcome Barn offering costume contests, pumpkin carving and crafts or head over to the animal barn for a magic show featuring William the Conjurer.

There's also a fortune teller on site for those wishing to know what the future holds.

For those craving more of an adventure there's a spooky maze, graveyard ghouls and for something truly terrifying head for the House of Horrors, with guided tour available for an extra charge of $3.50 per person, $12 for a group of four. Don't forget a flashlight and weatherproof boots

All other activities are included with a family admission of a suggested donation of $10.

Huble Homestead is located 40 km north of Prince George, just off Highway 97 on Mitchell Road. For more information call 250-564-7033 or visit hublehomestead.ca.
