Wickedly Grande's Food Scare for St. Joseph's Food Program
Welcome to Wickedly Grande! We are family-friendly haunted food drive benefiting St. Joseph's Food Program! Please help us feed the Fox Valley by donating non-perishable items to our donation bin located at the edge of the driveway.
Wickedly Grande has been haunting southeastern, and now northeastern Wisconsin since 2001. Our walk through home display is designed for those who like things creepy and gross but not too gory. We consider ourselves a "Starter Haunt", a place for families to introduce their children to the joys of the Halloween season. We are free (your non-perishable donation is highly encouraged), an outdoor walk through format, and open to the public.
Returning visitors know that our theme changes from year to year. We recently concentrated our efforts and have settled on two major ones we will rotate : cemetery and haunted farm. The majority of our props are home made and static, with a few store bought ones, and some which are animated. thrown in. Who appears each year is dependent on the theme and their purpose in the story we are telling.
We begin prop construction in spring and set up the last week of September. Since it takes at least a full week to finish set up, we urge you to watch for our "Opening Night" announcement. Full operations (music, fog, animated props) takes place Thursday - Saturday nights and Halloween night, from 6 PM til 9 PM. Other nights it is lights only. Know that this is also weather dependent, so if it is raining, snowing, or extremely windy, we will remain dark. We also host day time viewing for those who want to bring smaller children for their first experience and for those who want see the details you can't see at night.
Since we are a home haunt located in a subdivision, we ask your consideration of our neighbors when you visit. We do not have sidewalks, so please walk up our driveway, enter between the columns, follow the path to the exit, then walk along the outer edge of the fence to get your best views. Taking pictures and videos is allowed, but only from your side of the fence (for safety reasons). We also have a photo area set up, so please feel free to take a selfie with our handsome creatures. We do ask that you do not touch or try to move the props as they are heavy. We are also happy to answer any questions you might have, so feel free to say "Hi".
We welcome you to our haunted home, hope you enjoy the bit of magic we created, and thank you for contributing to the work of St Joseph's Food Program!
