Illuminated by soft candle lights, the carved pumpkins of various emotions present a cheeky side to the festive occasion. Prop up a few broomsticks for added mystery.

Even the bravest child might need a little coaxing when confronted with this massive 8 legged monster!

Prop ups of the witch and the cat never grow old. Those taking a nighttime stroll along this route would be forgiven for walking by a little faster than usual.
