We’re in the absolute thick of Halloween season, Columbus. For better or for worse, this means you’re going to get everything Halloween-y in large quantities for the next two weeks.
And while we’d like to pretend like we were immune to the childish glee that hits when you encounter some really cool Halloween decorations, here’s the truth: we’re not.
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
So in honor of the season, let’s take a deep dive into some of our favorite—and some of the craziest—Halloween decorations from around the city.
Location: West Beaumont Road (Beechwold)
You may have caught this one in years past, and even if you have, it’s worth another look. It’s officially become an annual tradition for this Beechwold house to create a massive AT-AT replica, from the Star Wars universe, every Halloween.
Location: Guilford Road (Upper Arlington)
All of our zombie apocalypse nightmares are coming true in this front yard. Just run.
Location: German Village
There’s something about the silhouetted figures, the uniformity of everything, and the weird almost childishness that makes this house so legitimately terrifying. Next, please.
Location: Montrose Avenue (Bexley)
This couple is famous in their South Bexley neighborhood for going all out each year, and they’ve clearly done it again this year. Don’t get too close to these abjectly horrifying clowns or they will spring to life via animatronics. This something you do not want to happen, trust us.
Location: Bryden Road (Old Towne East)
According to a resident of the area, Bryden Road on the Near East Side is something of a hub for Halloween decorations, with neighbors regularly engaging in a good-spirited contest of one-upping each other that has spiraled out of control (in a good way). We like the outcome.
