Chappell Farms (Barrie)

The works

We arrived in the middle of the Pumpkin Festival. This means that in addition to the usual animal petting, cow milking sessions, entertainment, playground, maze, cut-out characters and seasonal displays the farm offers, we were also treated to a Boo Barn and a Haunted Barn. I inadvertently entered the Haunted Barn with my 3-year-old, intending on the more suitable Boo Barn. Big mistake! The place was so dark I could barely see my own hand, let alone the scary actors breathing down my neck. It left my youngest completely panicked but my then 7-year-old loved every minute of it. He later joined the show in another barn and was asked to assist the skillful magician do a good card trick.
