Play Night @ Parker Haunted House @ the Mortuary, Denton

Let’s have a spooky play night!   We are moving our Play Night to Sunday Night since the Haunted House isn’t open on Mondays. Tickets are usually pretty expensive (like around $20) per my daughter who volunteered for these charities as one of their high school performers years back - she’s the fourth photo in under their 2010 gallery - such a cute girl even dressed for scaring people - doesn’t work when she’s so adorable!    If anyone knows of discounts for this event, please update us.

Dressing in costume is optional (you might even scare the high school and college volunteers inside).   Let’s meet to the left of the entrance at 7:30 p.m. and go in as a group.   Really cool place for a Haunted House.

"Until the 1940's the families of the dead would keep their deceased love ones in their homes until the time came for burials. A family member would have to stay with the body at all times until it was buried to keep the animals from disturbing it. This was called, "the wake". This could go on for days while the family members traveled from all around the country to pay their respects.  Over 65 years ago, old man Parker, his wife Nancy and daughter Mary, changed all that by providing their home (to these families) for this purpose. The dead would be brought to their home and the mortician would care for the body until the family could get together to say their goodbyes and bury their loved one. They named it, "The Parker's Funeral Home..."  "...In her hardened state, Mary started to salvage parts of the dead to re-sell on the black market. She would remove the organs from the bodies without the love ones knowledge and sell them to people in order to keep the Morgue alive. This paid more then the mortuary business over time. It soon became the primary source of income for Mary with the Funeral Home being the front to hide her grizzly works."  http://dfwfrightnights.com/index.html

If anyone has suggestions of where to hang out after the "scare," please write it below as we will be near I-35 & University in Denton!   If you get frightened easily...you may want to bring a friends that can handle your screams..
