Glad to have you & Casey back, Brent! You do such a good job w/your Halloween displays. :-) I, for one, appreciate what you do! :-)

Always a great job Brent... I'd also like to invite people to stop by my yard haunt, No Mercy Cemetery on the corner of Oak and Mercy streets. Mine is a static display, nothing moves like DC Cemetery, but all my donations this year are going to the Nine Lives Foundation / Feline Well-Care Clinic in Redwood City. I'll have the lights on until 10pm tonight and 9pm the rest of the week until Friday 11/4. Please stop by and make a donation to help the cats! Happy Halloween!

I am a long time resident who does NOT care for this attraction. The displays are very nice but they don't belong in a home front on a residential street. Brent and family need to rent some public place for this attraction. He even said, it draws many people, the street is shut down and it is a nuisance to residents who live RIGHT next to them.

Also, in the weeks and months leading up to Halloween, their driveway is an eye sore because of all the materials that are outside.

So please don't assume that this is Mt View's favorite Halloween tradition. Mr. DeBolt, you are writing an opinion. Many of my fellow residents of Old Mountain View don't care for it.

I disagree. Most of the neighborhood does like this attraction. Most of the visitors are OMVN residents. It builds community, it's a great tradition.

Hope you keep it open a few days longer -- would love to check it out and haven't been able to make it over yet.

Thanks so much for doing this.
