From the cute and inventive to the creepy and over-the-top, Gazette-Times readers believe that the Halloween displays at these 10 addresses stood out from others in Benton County.
If you’re looking for the grotesque, the yard at 665 S.E. Goodnight Ave. is jam-packed with strewn body parts and ghouls of all variety (read more about this display).
The Oregon State University Beaver’s City of the Dammed cemetery returns this year at 2020 N.W. Elder St. (view last year's article). The overall display, which includes black lights, sound, fog machines and projectors, also features animatronics and illusions inspired by the Disnleyland Haunted Mansion attraction.
A warning for those visiting 3079 Snowberry Place: Rumor has it that living, breathing creatures will be hiding in the dark to frighten unsuspecting visitors.
If you’re the faint of heart or looking for displays for a younger crowd, 4575 S.E. Third St. hosts a collection of giant inflatables, and 3237 S.E. Shoreline Drive features hand-painted cut-outs of friendly characters like a giant spider, witch and jack-O-lanterns.
