UPDATE: Healdsburg Haunted House Open For Business

Ghouls galore at free display at 14984 Grove St.

A Healdsburg Haunted House is now open for business...and quite a "Thriller" it is!

Cayes Rocha Sanchez, one of the family members involved in the annual display, put the finishing touches on the free exhibit Thursday.

See the for other decorated places in town...or add your own photos!

It's a scary business -- but someone's gotta do it.

"It's creepy," said Natalie Wilson of Cloverdale as she toured the front lawn of ghoul-maker Calletano Rocha Sanchez's home in Healdsburg. "I wonder what it's like at night."

Natalie, along with her cousins Jenna Lou Glisson and Alex Salinas, were accompanied by their aunt, Sarah Salinas of Geyserville, on a visit to Healdsburg's Halloween "display" over the weekend.

At the Haunted House at 14984 Grove St., many of Sanchez's creations are set up outside, lying in wait in various nefarious positions and poses for their "guests."

Someone is being hanged, another person is in a coffin, for example. Many "people" have blood dripping over their bodies.

"They do this every year," said Sarah Salinas. "You should see what they do at Christmas."
