In Kennett Square, hobnob with hobgoblins

Skeletons will come out of the shower at the Brick Garage/Pack Rats Place in Kennett Square for its Halloween display.

Some people keep their skeletons in the closet: A Kennett Square entrepreneur relegates hers to the shower, but with good reason: She needs a place for their safekeeping in between Halloween celebrations.

An assortment of ghoulish creatures will await visitors to the Brick Garage on Sunday, Oct. 30.

Skeletons represent just a fraction of the spooky décor that Jan Geddes has collected over the years – a ghoulish array that will be on display on Sunday, Oct. 30, at her shop, the Brick Garage/Pack Rats Place at 501 Penn Avenue in downtown Kennett Square.

Geddes is inviting the community to stroll a couple of blocks down State Street to Walnut Street – ideally if the spirit moves them – after the Kennett Square Halloween Parade, which starts at 3 p.m. Her annual, family-friendly, “haunted, not horror house” will run from 4 to 8 p.m.

At the Brick Garage, non-zombie visitors will be able to peruse a maze of Halloween scenes and twists and turns that reveal skeletons, a mad lab, witches, an eerie graveyard, a 13-foot spider, and other things that go bump in the night. No blood or gore sullies the mix so children, grandchildren, and anyone else who gets into the spirit of the Halloween season, is welcome, Geddes said.

Geddes has been providing the display since 2009 as a service to the community, she said. And although the rain-or-shine event is free, she this year any donations that she receives will go to The Garage Community and Youth Center to benefit their children programs.
