It was a ghoulish but great day 18 years ago when twin boys were born on Halloween, of all days. Sounds like the beginnings of a horror flick, right? Well, in reality, it’s simply the story of how a family in Lytton Park picked up the hobby of lavishly adorning their front yard with monsters and props each Halloween. Trevor Blakely, father of the twins born on Oct. 31, started this as a way to get his sons’ friends over to the house on his boys’ birthday. Now that the boys are young men, it’s a passion project and the house is decorated by mid-October each year. If you bring your little ones to the home, beware — not all the monsters are pretend. The Blakelys also dress up and hide amid the decorations waiting for the right chance to spook you out.
