WAXAHACHIE - Charles and Sandra McKee, sometimes better known as Herman and Lily Munster, will host their 6th Annual Munster Mansion Charity Event on Oct. 26 and 27 from 6 to 11 p.m.
As in years past, Pat Priest, Marilyn Munster from the 60's sitcom will be on hand to greet guests and sign autographs.
Admission to the grounds is free; however, tickets for tours of the Munster Mansion are $20 for adults and $12 for children 12 and younger. Every year the McKee's select a local charity to benefit from the annual event. It is the only time during the year when guests can tour the interior of the Mansion.
The mansion is a work in progress, as the McKee's have had to work without plans to meticulously recreate the Mansion. Their goal is to have an exact replica of the Mansion as it was seen in the Munster's TV series.
While the 5,000 square foot Mansion resembles a Hollywood horror film movie set, the McKee's call the Mansion their home. They relish in the task they have created for themselves, striving throughout the year to refine existing features and add new details.
This year the McKee's have partnered with Century 21 Judge Fite Company. The money raised during the two day charity event will benefit Easter Seals of North Texas.
Assorted food and drinks will be available. The admission fee covers access to the Haunted House, Fortune Teller and Puppet Show. Face Painting and a Caricature Artist will also be available. There are also Midway Games, Balloons and a Children's Costume Contest with prizes. Also featured are the actors from D.E.O.A Productions, performing a 'Zombie Shootout!' three times each evening.
Free shuttle service will be offered from Waxahachie Junior High at 2401 Brown Street to the Mansion.
