The Witches Den is returning for another year in Pictou.

PICTOU – The witches are back. People who want to be frightened by ghosts and ghouls are welcome to walk through the Witches Den on Oct. 26, 27, 28 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at 26 St. Stephen St. in Pictou. Admission is $5 a person.

The den is set up in the basement of the former priest’s home by a team of dedicated volunteers who spend weeks putting the den together.

With finishing touches still in the works, the witches den already features potions, rodents and enough dark décor to promise a few scares.

Visitors can expect to see some witches stirring their brew and some unexpected surprises around every corner. For those faint of heart, daylight tours will be held from 1 to 3 p.m.

There is a chance to go through various rooms in the basement that will each have different features to frighten visitors.

This will be the third year for the tour of the den with all proceeds going to the Star of the Sea Society, which wants to renovate the former home into a place where people can enjoy fellowship in a less formal setting. Each year, the number of visitors to the den increases and last year it raised $3,600 for the society.
