This elaborate yard display in Irvine is an old favorite of mine.

The spirits will materialize for NINE nights, transforming the residence at 16 Goldenrod into the old church and cemetery that once occupied the land.

Spooky science? I would have loved that as a kid. Well jeal!
It does look like a pretty awesome event, I agree!
Awesome post! I wish I lived closer to some awesome Halloween attractions like these to take my daughter to. We leave it Oklahoma and there really isn’t much to take her to
I am sure there has to be something nearby:) Google your city and check it out:) Have a great Halloween! 🙂
This is great – we used to be able to go house to house and trick-or-treat, but not in this day and age. So nice to have events, instead!
I used to love trick or treating myself. My brother & I would use pillow cases to get a lot of candy! 🙂
These are such creative ideas for Halloween. Thanks for curating them.
