Millars Well serves up scares before candy
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.
