WARWICK, RI — Warwick has several haunting yard displays showing spooky sights and sounds this October, offering all the elements of a thrilling Halloween tour.

THE HALL ASYLUM:  176 Lewiston St.

Head down Warwick Neck Avenue toward Rocky Point Park for a look at creepy clowns, carnival rides and spooky projections at the Hall Asylum. A small dive-bombing ghost is also making regular passes through the yard, not far from the radiation zombie pit. The display is open seven days a week and you can show your appreciation by leaving a donation to the Cops for Kids with Cancer charity.

BATES HAUNTED YARD DISPLAY: 258 Pettaconsett Ave.

Ominous music and a haunting array of buildings and scary characters waiting to creep you out. Special guest stars have included Freddy Kruger and Ectosoul, a Ghostbusters cosplayer. Check Bates Haunted Yard’s Facebook page for updates on coming attractions. Visiting is free, and the owners are collecting donations for Haunts for the Homeless.

“We offer a small walk-through in our front yard filled with all kinds of Halloween decorations, props, animatronics, etc. We have creepy Halloween music playing in the background. Our display is creepy, scary, but fun! Halloween night we have live actors.”

“I know know that some families struggle to buy extras for the kids, especially single moms,” Frank Picozzi said on his facebook page. “My wife and I went to St. Marks and bought a bunch of pumpkins. If you need one feel free to stop buy and get it just please take only one per family. We’ve put them out on the front walk, no need to knock or anything just pick one out.”
