A ghoulishly good display for first time Hope Halloween decorator

Laurie St. Amour said she has never decorated her home for Halloween before, yet her first effort could be classed as ‘going all out’ for the ghoulish holiday.

Spiders dominate her front yard display at her 684 Park St. home, some of which she purchased out of town and others at one local dollar store who she cleaned right out of their spider stock. Black crows also dot the lawn, some of which look so lifelike that they’ve already been attacked by neighbourhood felines.

The display looks different at night, as the spiders blend into the darkness and are replaced by ghoulish lights beaming from the eyes of two ceramic dogs.

St. Amour said she’s already looking ahead at Christmas, she has secured a tree and has a blow up santa coming in the mail.
