ROSELLE, NJ - "Neely Cemetery” in Roselle is back for its fifth consecutive year haunting anyone who dares to visit. 

Located at 250 W. 7th Ave. in Roselle, Neely Cemetery has become what most people describe as one of the most “eerie” homes in the community. 

“We started doing a small display about 5 years ago, on a dare from a friend and it has just grown bigger every year,” said Bruce Neely the owner of what is now known as one of the most popular places to visit for Halloween.

Neely expands the display every year which includes synchronized music and many mechanical displays and a huge light show along with laser lights that have been added for this year. 

“My girlfriend Teresa and I, enjoy the reaction of the people who come to see it, and that is the main reason we do it. People have fun. We watch them dance, and sing, and even clap after a song,” Neely added. 

The Neely Cemetery also has its own Facebook page which can be found by clicking here. The page lists showtimes for lights and music. During the week the house is just lighted with no music. On weekends the sound effects are turned on. There is also a radio channel if you want to listen from your car at 92.1 FM. The Facebook page also posts if they will not run the show due to inclement weather.

Tuesday -Thursday, they will light up the yard from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., lights only, and music will be on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Sundays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. with music and lights only from 9 p.m. to 10 pm. 

Come out if you dare!
