YUMA, Ariz. - Who says you cant have a haunted house during Christmas time? ''Twas the fright before Christmas'' is happening this Friday and Saturday. Located out in the county, owner Mark Plante has a real passion for everything scary, so much that he opened up his home and turned it into a haunted house.
All the proceeds from the event go to habitat for humanity. 'twas the fright before Christmas' takes place every *other* year, so if you're in the Yuma area, it's an event you don't wanna miss. Head volunteer David Rhine showed us around and shared his favorite part of the haunted Christmas festivities.
"By far my favorite room has got to be the graveyard. There's just so much to see and so much going on, there's music going off to lights, there's lasers, there's fog machines. There's people kinda poppin' out just saying, 'merry Christmas' to you. It's just a real fun place to walk through," said Rhine.
With it being a 30 minute walk through what's almost like a maze, there is tons to see and enjoy. The last time this was hosted was in 2015 and they raised over 16 thousand dollars for habitat for humanity. The hope is to have an even bigger turnout this year.
It's located at 15485 s. Avenue 4E, Yuma, Arizona 85365 and is happening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m (last entry is at 9:00 p.m. If there is no line at that time) on December 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd. Tickets are $8 at the door. Pre-sale tickets are available for $4 and $5. You can call Habitat for Humanity in Yuma to get the pre-sale tickets.
