McGregor home is a frighteningly fun destination each Halloween


Halloween is Anne Kruse’s favorite Halloween. She decorates her and husband Jerry’s McGregor house inside and out each year, and also plans an elaborate themed party. (Photo by Audrey Posten)

This hand made witch had a crash landing on Anne Kruse’s porch. Kruse finds many decorating ideas on Pinterest.

These skeletons crawl on a structure next to the Kruse home on Walton Street.

This year’s theme is Egyptian, and Kruse has been busy creating a sarcophagus and hieroglyphics. There will also be a mummy and Egyptian queen.

Kruse typically starts decorating in mid-September. “Although, if I’m making things that are more involved, I’m planning them well in advance of that,” she remarked.

“We don’t do a lot of gore," Kruse said of the decorations. "Halloween is supposed to be fun."
