Haunted houses creep to life in Nelson

Those brave enough to tread into the spooky graveyards at two Uphill homes are encouraged to bring a donation for the Nelson Food Cupboard.

Trick or treaters beware … Karen and Bruce Walgren and their daughter Lauren have transformed their 1716 Stanley St. home into a haunted house with skeletons dancing the tango in a graveyard, under a tree full of dangling jack-o’-lanterns, while witches brew spells nearby in the cavernous garage.

The Walgrens welcome those who dare to bring a food item or coins to place into a large cauldron guarded by a cackling coven of witches. All donations go to the Nelson Food Cupboard.

Ginny and Kevin McClelland in the 500 block of Observatory St. have teamed up with their Stanley St. neighbours and have gone all out with an elaborate graveyard theme, complete with a gigantic spider climbing its web.
