Sophia's 9th annual Haunted House for charity!
(was) Friday, October 25, 2013
THANK YOU! We earned $2000 for the Food Bank!

See you next year!

Once again, the Barretts have turned their ancient stone basement into a HAUNTED HOUSE filled with spooky stuff, especially for kids! Skeletons... spiders... ghouls... eyeballs... and over a dozen live actors!

Take a tour before Halloween and support a local charity!

Admission: The $5.00 admission fee gives you a full tour of the haunted house. All proceeds (100%) are donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank.

How scary? The basement is dark, and our actors do wear masks and costumes. However, we have three different "levels" of scariness to suit children of various ages:

  1. No scares: Actors stand still, act friendly, and will unmask if you ask them to.
  2. Medium scary: Actors move in creepy ways.
  3. Very scary: Actors jump out and surprise you!

We hope to see you there!
