We asked Bee readers to share their scares with us outdoor residential Halloween displays they think are well worth seeing. Heres what they told us:
Faby Haro recommends 2245 Lambert St., Modesto: The decorations a cemetery, witches, caldrons, ghosts, a grim reaper and lots more are great, Haro says.
Debra Bush, 2405 Edgebrook Drive, Modesto, has several frightening figures in her yard. Halloween has always been a time I love to decorate for. I am just recovering from cancer and my friends and neighbors thought I was crazy to spend energy decorating, but I love it.
Greg Reed, 3104 Wycliffe Drive, Modesto, wrote: A residence that is always well-decorated and especially beautiful for Halloween at nighttime is our house. The home is decorated with the usual skeletons, coffins, tombstones and lots of spider webs and human cocoons. The house is watched over by the Wicked Witch of the West and a sparkly skeleton watching for goblins from the bay window. The yard has numerous speakers and scary music to scare the most seasoned trick-or-treater. Beware of the zombie watching over the mailbox.
Kimberly Goldman invites people to check out her home, 1136 Cambridge Court, Modesto. Inside and out, it takes her about two months to decorate, she said.
And the folks at the Scary Perry Haunted House, in its 16th year at 1576 Sage Sparrow Ave., Manteca, wrote: We are not your typical neighborhood haunted house. People have stood in line for up to two hours to go through, and returnees are happy to wait. It has become a tradition to many families. We dont make money from this, it is all for the love of it. We used to turn down donations, but in the past years, it has become quite expensive, especially to feed a crew of up to 50 per night. Open today and Thursday from dusk till 10 p.m.
