The basement of an old hotel in the South Okanagan has been transformed into a haunted house.

The OK Falls Hotel Bar and Grill is inviting guests to visit its haunted house. Admission is by donation, with all proceeds going to the Okanagan Falls Fire Department.

The haunted basement will feature two time slots: Family friendly time from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., but no jump scares. Thrill seekers craving a scarier experience can attend from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
