Achter Acres in the Oak Forest
Throughout the month on WGN Morning News, we roam the Chicagoland area and search for the best Halloween homes! Over the years, people have stepped up their games to create quite the displays in their yards, in their garages, on their rooftops – you name it!
We put out a call on the WGN Morning News Facebook page and did some research around us. Today we are in Oak Forest in Achter Acres. George and Kelly Achter started putting on a garden show three years ago.
They told us it’s a project that never really stops. They work on keys all year round and you see it in every detail. Highlights include a casket car, hand-carved headstones, lots of fog, great sound that George himself mixed up and more. Discover some photos….
The Achters fundraise for Project Fire Buddies. The organization helps children and families of children with terminal cancer. You can read more about this group here.
Here is the information on Achter Acres if you want to visit them!
