Halloween Houdini Escape Attempt by Dean Gunnarson

From the October 29th Facebook post by Dean Gunnarson:

This Halloween I will get locked up in 8 sets of police handcuffs from different countries. The handcuffs will represent that Parent Alienation affects millions of children and parents around the world. I will then be locked inside a metal coffin that will be bound and locked with heavy chains and maximum-security locks. The coffin is symbolic because the effects of Parent Alienation slowly kills a loving and caring parent and keeps a child away from half a loving and caring family. This escape from the handcuffs and metal coffin is not life threatening but extremely challenging, painful, and enduring. Imagine your self locked and chained inside a metal coffin and what would you do ???
 

This escape has never been attempted before by anyone! 


The escape event will start at 1 pm and the escape will happen about 1:26 pm October 31, the same time Houdini died in 1926.  Because of Covid my location is Not being released to the general public as a public event. It will be for media only. Safe distancing and Covid rules will be asked to be upheld. The location is near downtown Winnipeg in a safe open historic area with free parking. Media can even record the event from their own vehicles.

Philip’s Magical Paradise update!

From the May 23rd article "Giroux magic museum not disappearing yet" by Jordan Ross in The Carillon:
A group of Winnipeg magicians has put their wands together and come up with a plan to keep Western Canada’s only museum of magic and illusion open for another summer.

Marc Hache of the Magic Club of Winnipeg said Tuesday the 25-member group is rallying the volunteers needed to reopen Philip’s Magical Paradise on Sunday afternoons during July and August.

The future of the Giroux institution became uncertain last August, when maintenance of the 115-year-old former church that houses the museum became too difficult for longtime proprietor Marilyn Hornan.
