A haunted house at the Oxbow Saloon, filled with a museum of resident spooks, goblins and scary surprises will be staged by the Payson High School Drama Department. For all you parents worried about bringing the little ones to this spooky gala, you will be happy to know that this is a family event and the “Scariness” of the haunted house will be adjusted depending on the age of the children going through it.  A portion of the gate will go to help support the Drama Department and their yearly activities. This year’s haunted house theme will be ZOMBIELAND!!!. 

Admission to the haunted house is $3 per person or $2 plus one can of food.
