Mother Nature went from “nice fall” to “miserable winter” in one quick day.

Brian and Theresa Christie in Endiang once again had their Spooky Garage decorated, which was a fright-delight that thrilled the young and older sets alike. There were lots of spooky effects including live actors to create plenty of scream-worthy experiences.
