Canterbury Village Converts Castle Wedding Venue Into Haunted Halloween Attractions – CW50 Detroit


Southfield (CW50) – Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down the marriage industry dramatically. One of the main venues in Canterbury Village was a castle, usually reserved for weddings throughout the year.

Fright Village consists of a tour of the Doll Factory, Sunnydale Hospital, Phryte Manor’s Dead & Breakfast and outside the Field of Screams. Each attraction is home to a unique group of characters wandering through a maze of oddly shaped hallways, secret passages that lead nowhere, and doors that open onto brick walls. Community Connect host Lisa Germani got a glimpse of the attractions a few weeks ago and was so scared she only managed one attraction.
