This year marks our 41st Annual Haunted House!!
In 1978, the ladies of the Sorosis Club came up with a fundraising idea that has grown into our Annual Haunted House. It was an instant hit for the residents in our community and they look forward to coming back every year. Many local residents have come through as children and are now sharing the experience with their own grandchildren!
H.H. Holmes World Fair 1893 - A Trip to Nowhere will open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from Oct 17th through Oct 26th starting at 7:00PM. Visit our Facebook Page for specific times. Each year our theme is changed to entice our audience and challenge their fears. Visitors are impressed with the creativity and special effects. Our scare factor is right up there with Halloween Horror Nights!!
The crimes of H.H. Holmes are the stuff of horror movies. A good looking businessman lures many out of town guests into his brand new, grand hotel. He took great pleasure personally showing them to their rooms which they soon discovered only opened from the outside. The hotel is not at all what it seems: stairs to nowhere, rooms made into gas chambers, peepholes, trap doors and chutes that lead into the most sinister room of all...the basement! Be prepared to come face to face with murder, madness and magic!
It will take over 60 volunteers to transform our 3,000 square foot building into a Murder Hotel.The monies we raise go toward charitable contributions benefiting area children and causes in our community. The Sorosis Club is well known for our haunted house and other annual events such as Lunch with Easter Bunny, Summer Splash Bash, Lunch with Santa, and Operation Santa. You will find us at the Manatee Festival, Orange City 4th of July Celebration and other fundraising events. We are so grateful to the support of our community! So come on out to see us this October and get scared for a good cause.
