And a look of all the haunted houses in Ormond Beach this weekend.
Some families spend quality time around the dinner table. Others used their combined creative skills to replicate a restaurant kitchen where the chef cooks human legs for dinner. It just depends .
Chrissie Kimble has been a haunted house visionary since 2012, when she created a creepy experience for the students of Pine Trail Elementary out of unused portable. When Volusia County Schools took the portable back, students were left without a haunted house — until Kimble's father, Jerry Janaro stepped in.
"She had all these decorations they weren't going to use," said Janaro, who's on the board of Ormond Mainstreet. "So I presented in to Mainstreet , and now I'm the chair of the haunted house."
Chrissie Kimble helps supply all the decorations and come up with the spooky characters for the house. Janaro assists his son-in-law, Ken Kimble builds the maze out of PVC pipe inside one of the vacant stores in the Granada Plaza. The Kimble kids, 10-year-old Delaney, 9-year-old Lucy and 5-year-old Finn, dress up as characters and do anything else they can to help out.
"Ken is very creative with the lighting and the pipes," Janaro said. "There are hundreds that go together to make this thing, and he's able to knock it out pretty quick. We have a great time doing this."
