Check out this Lakewood home’s Halloween display

LAKEWOOD, Ohio – Sarah Sherepita’s love for Halloween began at a young age.

“I remember being a little trick or treating a kid and looking at the houses,” she said.

As an adult, with her own home on Cannon Avenue in Lakewood, that love only grew.

“Twelve years ago we bought the house,” she said. “We had the first Halloween and it was really small.”

Once October arrives, Sherepita transforms into “Pirate Lady” and her house transforms into a pirate ship.

“The children I meet are like, ‘Oh my God, you are the pirate woman,’” she said. “I want to create this experience for every child that passes here and have a memory that they can take with them.”

One of his neighbors, Maxim Parker, 11, said his home was one of his favorite exhibits.

“Every year we pass by this house,” he said. ” It’s awesome. A 10/10.

The house is equipped with drunken pirates, treasure, canoe, mast, curtains, walking board, foam, bubbles, candy cannon, and Sherepita, herself, spitting fire.

“Everything has just been found or given to me,” she said. “I’m starting in September. People ask me how long it takes to build, I have no idea how many hours you should ever drive.

His passion for the Night of the Living Dead brought the Lakewood neighborhood to life.

“Every night it’s like a line of cars,” neighbor Nicole Ramos said. “Every year we get just one more big thing [to add to their display]”

But there’s more to Sherepita’s display than meets the eye. It’s not just about making Northeast Ohio kids smile, it’s about helping kids nationwide. Sherepita said that with all the attention to her home, she wanted to do something more, so she put up signs for St. Jude’s October fundraiser in front of her lawn.

“I asked all the neighbors if we could put a sign in their yard and they said ‘absolutely no problem’,” she said.

Each sign has a QR code that you can scan. It will take you directly to the site to donate.
