At the Haunted Garage, lots of scary decorations are on display.

The Haunted Garage is a family geared haunted attraction for people of all ages. Run by family, friends and former students of the owner Glenn Williams, the neighborhood haunted garage serves its purpose to spook and scare kids or adults.
According to Williams, the garage helps local schools raise

money, such as the PTOs.
“We have between 20 and 25 different groups with us this year, including almost every school in Grosse Pointe,” Williams said. “For a lot of them, we are their number one fundraiser for the year.”
On June 10, 2020, the attraction was hit with a storm that ripped the house apart.
“I had a branch go all the way into my living room,” Williams said. “Every tree and every bush on my property was destroyed. It was about a year of full recovery.”

Due to the storm, the house wasn’t able to open last year, but it is back open this year according to Williams. General admission tickets are on sale for $13, while front of the line VIP tickets are $20. Tickets are available at the door, and the garage is open from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Although the house isn’t open on Halloween night, it is open Oct. 22-24 and Oct. 29-30 at the address 19520 Mack Ave. This will be Haunted Garage Productions 14th year opening the attraction. William thanks the members of Grosse Pointe South’s National Honors Society for their immense volunteer help with monitoring the outside of the house and more. “They volunteer for hours and it really helps us out, we appreciate that.”
