The husband-and-wife team collaborated with Aerin and Eric of Therascapes Design, a local design company, to design, build and stage the display.
Each of the character statues and snow-covered stone walls was carved and hand-painted, said Aerin. It took the two-person team about eight weeks to complete.
The lights and music will be turned on nightly at sunset (typically 5:30 p.m.) and will stay on through 10 p.m. Since the display covers both holidays, Jessica said the plan is to keep it up through New Year's Eve.
They want people to get an up-close look at the house and are encouraging people to park along the street and walk up to the house. The porch has been decorated with Halloween-themed Christmas trees, skeleton figurines, and an interactive Jack Skellington.
As with the others displays we've showcased, this one is in a neighborhood and is a home display. Please be mindful of nearby neighbors by not parking in or blocking their driveways, or parking on their lawns.
The homeowners plan to collect toys to donate to a charity for the holidays, but those details were still being finalized.
