WILMINGTON — It takes two days for Robert and Lois Williams of Hillcrest Avenue to set up their annual Halloween display for the community — which is one day less than it takes them to set up for Christmas!

Lois said kids and kids at heart come by to take pictures of their annual displays.

For Halloween, those include a skeleton army, a graveyard, inflatables, chimneys with lighted eyes, and even a scary wolf peering out from inside their living room.

Lois added that they do it up even bigger on beggars night.

The News Journal wants to know about the best-decorated Halloween homes in Clinton County so we can share that information — and photos — with our readers so you can check them out.

We invite you to post photos on this story on our Facebook page or email them to info@wnewsj.com.
