Family builds ‘Hogwarts Castle' in front yard during Halloween

Joel Pace decided to do something different for Halloween back in 2015; he created a Harry Potter themed decoration on the front porch of his home. Although it was initially intended for his family's enjoyment, over the years it’s grown into a neighborhood “must-see,” and an attraction that their community looks forward to visiting each year on Halloween. When Pace’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, this endeavor became a passion project and he started to out-do himself with each passing Halloween season. Decorations and massive displays brought joy to his wife and the whole neighborhood, but also became an avenue to raise money for local charities.
