Follow the signs to Jeannie’s Haunted House on Promontory Heights.

She’s been working hard to create a wicked Halloween display at her house.

“I don’t watch horror movies but I love scaring people,” said Jeannie Savard. “Basically I do it for the kids.”

She creates a haunted house display every year, and did it for years in Abbotsford before shifting the tradition to Chilliwack when she moved to Promontory a few years ago.

“I change it up every year and add new elements,” she said. “Everybody loves it. It’s so exciting.”

Her 16-year-old niece from Australia is experiencing her first North American Halloween celebration this year..

Savard set up a “Circus of Horrors” in the garage and “Zombieville” can be found is along the side the house.

The front yard has a creepy graveyard, pirate ship, and a mad science lab. The public is invited to check it out at 5379 Westwood Drive.

Jeannie’s Haunted House will be open Thursday, Oct. 27, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and then on Halloween night Oct. 31, from 6 p.m. 10 p.m. Entry is by donation of a canned pet food item for the SPCA.
