Halloween isn't all tricks and treats in the D.C. area — there's plenty of scare to go around, too. Here are a number of haunted happenings taking place this season.
The name says it all: Visitors to this year’s event will be shocked at the spooky transformation of Paxton Campus’ Paxton Manor. The Loudoun County haunted house tells the legend of the Carver family, who were banished from Leesburg and forced to move to the caverns below the mansion. Fast forward 100 years and the Carvers are sick of living underground, so they’re taking back the 32-room manor.
Tickets to Shocktober are $35 online and $40 at the ticket office; the house is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in October. All proceeds benefit Paxton Campus, a nonprofit that serves children and adults with disabilities. (Courtesy Shannon Finney Photography)
