Howdy folks. I hope that your holiday plans are coming along nicely. Typically, the holiday season is about as far away from Halloween and other spooky festivities as you can get. However, if you happen to be in the Columbus, OH area and need a little fix of the macabre, I believe I may have scared something up for you.
The ScareATorium haunted attraction, in Dublin, Ohio features an unusual holiday themed window display lighted from 6-10 pm nightly through December 31, 2011.
Growing up in Worthington, Ohio; it was a holiday tradition for ScareAtorium Producer Kelly Collins to travel to downtown Columbus with his family to see the Christmas window displays at Lazarus. They would spend hours looking at the windows and then drive around town to see the festive lights on local buildings. It’s those memories that inspired Kelly to decorate the windows at the Scare-A-Torium; their Halloween haunted attraction in Dublin at the Dublin Village Center.
ScareATorium Actors spent two weekends decorating the Castle façade with garland and lights and creating several window displays. Of course; since it is a haunted attraction, they needed to keep some of the attraction slightly on the macabre side. “I guess the zombie and clown toy workshop teeters towards the Nightmare before Christmas theme” said Kelly Collins; “and the Christmas trees are adorned with pumpkins, spiders and a few skulls” he added. Additional window displays include a giant Sock Monkey in one window and holiday pigs in another. Collins noticed dozens of people driving by were stopping to observe the decorators in action; with some walking up for a closer look and picture-taking.
The Scare-A-Torium is closed until next Halloween season, but the window displays will be up providing holiday cheer on a dark side of the shopping center through the end of the year. So if you are driving around the Dublin/Sawmill road area at night, be sure to swing by the Dublin Village Center and spend a few moments enjoying the Halloween themed Christmas displays!

This is the first time I’ve lived in a community where trick-or-treating was sometimes held on a day other than the 31st. This year however, it appears that activities will be held on Monday the 31st (as they should be).
