This family puts in SO MUCH TIME to give this to the community for FREE!

DETAILS | Pack up the family for an evening out! Drive by several of the spookiest homes and admire the ghoulish yard displays of St. Charles’ finest home haunters. Some displays may not be appropriate for all ages. Parents, please use your discretion…only the brave should exit their cars! Please be courteous and respect the homeowners’ rights and property during your adventure.
