It’s mid-October and little ghosties, Jack-o-Lanterns, grave stones, witches, over sized spider webs and other trappings of Halloween have begun to appear in the Surmont, Belgatos and Belwood neighborhoods of east Los Gatos. There’s no shortage of the “Halloween Spirit” – so to speak – in this corner of town! It sure is fun to see.
What’s your favorite haunt in the hood?
If you’d like to share your photos of ultra cool Halloween decorating, I’d be very happy to post them here! Whether it’s effects that show up on October 1st or October 31st, we’d love to share them with the neighbors!
As the month goes on, I will add images of local streets, yards and homes where the decor is noteworthy.
Here’s one of my very favorites – a great little ghost western style town up the street from Jim & me.
And another one with some serious spider webbing:
And yet another with quite a few ghosts – this one on Westhill Drive’s Belgatos area.
Meanwhile, if your not-so-haunted house has children who’d like to participate in a pumpkin decorating contest, I’d like to invite you and them to dive into the project asap. My real estate brokerage, Sereno Group, is hosting its annual pumpkin decorating (not carving) contest and the DEADline is this Friday, October 21 at 5pm.
Read all about the contest on my Live in Los Gatos blog. Hope to see loads of the spooky, cute, funny, and outrageous creations next week!
Sunday October 26th from 3:30 – 6pm (free admission but donations appreciated) – games, prizes, candy, costumes and “the magic mirror”. Spooky haunted house tours begin at 5pm.
Pizza and Drinks served at 4pm (Pizza $2, Drinks $1).
Volunteers are needed to help with this incredibly fun event. Please contact Charleen Renati at 358-7905 or email@example.com.
