Friends create Facebook group to show off local Halloween haunts

Wanting to do something special for Halloween this year, buddies Eddy Fritz and Jerrod Delagrave created the Facebook group J&E Hauntings, which shines a light on local homes elaborately decorated for the spooky season.

Fritz, a Plainville resident, and Delagrave, who resides in Southington, state on the J&E Facebook page: “We have created this group for Plainville, Southington and more nearby towns to post their Halloween haunts and decorations. The goal of this page is to share as many houses that are set up for Halloween, with their location, so people can drive by and enjoy their creativity. This is a nice way to start some Halloween fun. Happy Haunting!”

Plainville resident Danielle Afonso was happy to share her Halloween decorations on the J&E page.

One can see Afonso’s haunt just about the moment they get to her road, Rockwell Avenue. The 12-foot skeleton and pumpkin line-up at her front door are hard to miss. “I just like Halloween,” she said.

Afonso and her husband started going all out with Halloween decorations about three years ago. After bringing the giant skeleton home, “It just took off from there,” she said.

A hard-to-find witch decoration – which Afonso said she and her husband drove to Massachusetts to obtain – is new to her set-up this year. 

The J&E Hauntings Facebook group has amassed more than 240 members, and Fritz and Delagrave do their best to keep the page fresh.

Fritz said the duo spent four hours one night tracking down local haunts.

“We had an amazing night driving around taking pictures of all the Hauntings. You guys rock and put in a lot of work,” Fritz stated on Facebook.
