Every year on Halloween night, in the Serrano Village D neighborhood, kids and parents get a real treat with one of the most creative front yard Halloween decoration displays - the animated GHOST SHOW. Along with a small handful of other beautifully decorated homes, this is a kid-friendly, fun Halloween mini street-walk featuring decorated homes for both kids and adults to enjoy.
The animated GHOST SHOW occurs ONLY on Halloween night, and only for approximately 2.5 hours from dark to around 8:30pm. For kid's safety, free glow sticks are handed out and the street is blocked off from cars. If it rains on Halloween night, the ghost show may be reduced to a smaller display in the garage only, depending on the size of the storm.
The Serrano HOA also offers an official HOA Halloween celebration to the residents on Halloween in the afternoon typically around 2pm-4pm at the HOA facilities for trick-or-treating fun. Happy Halloween!
