Father and Son’s Scary Halloween Maze Raises Money For Local Animal Shelter

For the past 15 years, a father and son from Warwick, Rhode Island, have been turning their front yard into a spooky Halloween maze.

Fred Moussally and his son, Anthony, started working on this year’s “The House on Lakecrest” display in mid-August and used new and recycled items. The pair said it is their biggest display yet.

No detail has been spared and the final product is scary good.

Fred described their creation in a Facebook post. “As you enter it will take you through the Butcher Chop, scary scarecrows, toxic electrocution chamber and some other surprises. Look for the secret path way that brings you out towards the werewolf’s, zombies and don’t forget Michael Myers… Finally you will enter the hall of clowns, filled with strobe lights, music and smoke machines.”

They create the elaborate maze for the children and homeless animals in their community.

Anthony told NBC 10 News, “I love the kids when they get scared. It’s awesome.”

But scaring the locals is just one benefit.

While there is no fee to enter, the family collects donations for Warwick Animal Shelter. A donation box is built into the display and 100% of the donations are given to the shelter.

The Moussally family also decorates their lawn for Christmas and includes a donation box in that display as well.

Last year, the family donated $2,000 to the shelter from their displays and hopes to do the same this year.

The maze is open to the public and the family hopes everyone will stop by before Halloween.

The hours are as follows:
Thursday-Sundays 6:30pm-9pm.
Fridays and Saturday 6:30pm -10pm
