Mil­lars Well serves up scares be­fore candy

Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Pe­ter de Krui­jff

Chil­dren lined up around the block on Rouse Court on Satur­day night wait­ing to be scared wit­less at Kar­ratha’s own haunted house, where the bravest young souls would re­ceive sug­ary re­ward for mak­ing it through.

Those who dared en­ter en­coun­tered heads in float­ing jars, spi­der web-clad walls, Drac­ula’s lair, and a grave­yard among other scares.

It was the fourth year the Wright and Kit­tle fam­ily have con­verted the Mil­lars Well home into a house of hor­rors.

Judy Wright said it started be­cause Sheri­dan Kit­tle was Amer­i­can, and both fam­i­lies wanted to share the tra­di­tion with his eightyear-old son Troy.

It takes days to set up and a few windy days played havoc this year, knock­ing the whole thing down on Fri­day morn­ing. Min­utes be­fore open­ing their doors the two fam­i­lies and their neigh­bours had a big feed be­fore trans­form­ing into crea­tures of the night.

Close to 500 peo­ple pass through the house dur­ing the an­nual event.

Mrs Wright thanked McDon­alds, Wool­worths and the Pil­bara Mul­ti­cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion, for help­ing set up the event.

The spooky res­i­dents of Rouse Court in Mil­lars Well pro­vided chills and treats for Kar­ratha chil­dren.
