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.
