When it comes to going "over the top" at Halloween, no one does it better than South Central Title Agency in Soldotna. The business is located across from Sweeney's on the Sterling Highway in Soldotna, and while the normal business culture focuses on real estate transactions, South Central Title transforms each season, much to the delight of area residents. From the Fab Fifties and Grease, to Pirate themes, to this year's South Central Castle - complete with drawbridge and dungeon, Joe Rogers and staff turn their normally sedate offices into a virtual Disney attraction. "What can we say? The bounty was plentiful this year and it only seemed well to return to the subjects of the enchanted community of the Kenai Peninsula a time of feasting and merry making for all," decreed King Joesph on the eve of Halloween. According to King Joesph, hundreds of guests turned out for the annual festivity and only a few peasants lost their heads or were put in the stockade for showing up without a royal seal on their invitation.
Citizens of the Enchanted kingdom were greeted by the King and his "court" - that included Princess Keri Hiler, and Knight of the Supper Table Lady Erin Gahringer. After crossing over the drawbridge and entering through the castle gates, visitors were able to mingle with the royal court that included her highness Nichole Smith and her 9-month-old nephew Prince Gunner, along with Lady Sammie Roderick who escorted guests to the castle dining hall. Then with a puff of smoke, soothsayers Sharon Dallmann and Julie Murchison appeared with their magic wands and crystal ball to foretell all. "We see nothing but success and prosperity for all who enter the South Central enchanted kingdom gates," they said, "And another great Holiday in 2011!"
