Local Residents get Creative For Halloween

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The biggest holidays of the year are among us and homeowners are taking this holiday to the next level.

Ninjas, pumpkins, pixies...we've all seen them, but Halloween is more than just costumes. It's the one day of the year where a house can look haunted and about anyone will just walk in.

Dana Naatz explains how much the holidays mean to her, "I had kids growing up, and I always like to decorate and Halloween and Christmas are the two big ones I decorate for".

Dana has been spooking kids for the past 20 years and it's not going to stop anytime soon. Homeowners are getting creative with their decorations.

"I do it cause I like it, I do it for the kids, I do it for anybody that wants to see it. And at night the little lights come on and the graveyard lights up".

The day of terror is also a chance to give back...

"I guess giving candy and giving treats out to the kids or pencils...if you want to don't want to send them to the dentist"

Neighbors are welcoming locals with ghosts, spiders, scarecrows, but...

"Halloween would be nothing without a skeleton or Chuky by your side"

And for those who have not decorated yet, Dana says you still have time.

"Take one day and just have fun with it"

We want to see your creative homes, take a picture and share it on our Facebook page. We'll show the scariest ones on our newscasts throughout the week!
