SYDNEY — A Whitney Pier family who lost their carnival life on the road this year has brought that atmosphere into their home for Halloween.
The Halloween house is part of a 19-year tradition for Mary Jo Campbell and her family and sees them follow a dark and spooky theme.
“We’ve all been carnival workers for 20 years and we lost our season this year due to COVID,” said Campbell who travels with Hinchey’s Rides and Amusements. “So we decided to change up our Halloween decorations to a creepy carnival. When you come through the door all you hear is the creepy carnival music. It’s the real deal.”
The house isn’t open to the public. Despite that, it has drawn 60 to 80 family and friends from across Canada.
“It’s the first time in 19 years they can’t be here due to COVID-19 so it’s emotional, but we’re fine,” she added.
Family who enter this year are asked to bring a food donation for the Whitney Pier food pantry.
