This must be the most elaborate Halloween set-up in Stittsville. From October 29-31, trick-or-treaters can check out the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show on Cherry Drive.
Owner Joseph Carbonetto says that last year 3,000 people came to the haunted house. There’s scary stuff on the front lawn, in the garage and in the backyard. Some of the props are bought, some are homemade.
When I stopped by on Saturday, the garage door was open and among the severed heads and cobwebs was a real coffin. (Carbonetto says he has a contact who works at a funeral home.)
- A custom-installed underground fog machine
- An animated zombie crawler and skeleton
- A 16-channel lighting controller
- Live undead actors
(There are some photos on his Facebook page.)
Admission is by donation, with money collected going to charity. This year the money will go to support Canadian Forces families.
Here’s a video of the same house from 2010.
We want to see your photos! If you have a great Halloween display, or if you see one in your neighbourhood, send us a photo and tell us where it is. You can send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
