Pet World’s Haunted Castle

It's no secret that we love to create big and entertaining things- like our annual St. Patrick's Day float, which gets bigger and better every year. Our friends at Pet World are the same way when it comes to Halloween.

The crew at Pet World, along with volunteers from the neighborhood and all around town, have been creating haunted houses for a number of years now. Like our floats, every year their haunted house gets bigger and better, and they spend countless hours and lots of money putting together a labor of love, all for just a few hours' worth of entertainment. And like us, they have as much fun putting everything together.

This year's theme is a haunted castle- and the dragon from our castle float this year makes an appearance!

Dave and I got a sneak peek at this year's haunted castle, and it is truly amazing. They've created a whole maze of rooms in their yard, complete with all the spooky Halloween props, decorations and costumed actors you can dream of. Even in the daylight the castle was creepy, and the amount of time and energy that goes into putting this together is something we can definitely appreciate.

Details for this year's haunted castle:

  • Sunday, October 31, from 7-9 p.m.
  • 29th Court and Missouri Street in Lawrence, 2 blocks south of 27th & Missouri
  • Free line to the north for costumed trick-or-treaters age 12 and under
  • For everyone else, the line forms to the south. There's a $1 charge which goes to the Lawrence Humane Society.

The first 300 people will get free, reusable Pet World shopping bags.

If you love fun, interactive, family events- and Halloween- we encourage you to take the family over to the Pet World haunted house. You won't regret it!
