Spooky scenes from the neighborhoods

Residents get into the Halloween spirit

On this most ghoulish of holidays, residents of Palo Alto's neighborhoods got into the spirit of Halloween in a variety of creative ways.

Witches were found along Coleridge Avenue, where one was ready to take off on her broomstick and another found herself stuck upside down at a front yard.

A life-sized jack-o'-scarecrow was welcoming people to a straw-bale maze over at Waverley street, not far from cobwebs draping tall bushes on Webster Street.

A orange and black spider took over the roof of a home on Addison Avenue and skeletons draped in white have popped up in University South.
