A spooky tradition


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Three local mothers — Chrystal Mcclain, Karolyn Frazier and June Lee — got together eight years ago to create a safe Halloween party for their children. Seen here are Frazier, left, and Mcclain, right, preparing a ghostly bride at the private haunted house on West Walnut Street. “Ninety percent of what you see outside and inside is hand-made,” Mcclain said. “We’ve been working and collecting for nine years — our party is eight years and counting. The three of us have been friends for more than 17 years. We have enjoyed sharing many traditions with our kids together, including Halloween.” Other friends would step up to help over the years. This year it is Anthony Garcia. “We can’t make it public,” he said. “Otherwise we have to get a permit and it has to be up to code.” “Between us we have 14 kids,” Lee said. “Last year 60 kids from close friends in town came to see it.” While visitors may not enter the haunted house or the maze, it is still worth seeing because the group has spent just as much energy on the outside, which includes a cemetery.
