The Castle of the Dead Haunted House and Pumpkin Patch was established in 2011 as a collaborative community event between Sun Street Centers and Salinas Girls Fastpitch. The 6,000 square foot haunted house and outdoor pumpkin patch brings together over a 1,000 community members during Halloween week and provides safe, fun and family-friendly activities for people of all ages. As each year comes and goes, we continue to evolve, building in theatricality, excitement and community involvement!
The event’s focus is to promote health and activity for youth in a fun, safe and family-friendly environment, and the proceeds from the event equally benefit Sun Street Centers and Salinas Girls Fastpitch. Specifically, event proceeds support Sun Street Centers’ youth alcohol and drug abuse prevention efforts and youth sports opportunities for our community’s top performing female athletes participating in the Salinas Girls Fastpitch.
