Lighting the night

A Clifford man this year is continuing a 25-year tradition of decorating his yard and home for Halloween — in a big way.

Chris Robertson said he keeps adding to the display each year, and this Halloween season has been no exception.

Robertson began the tradition when his children were small and has doubled the size of the display during the past five years.

The display at 6250 E. County Road 550 North, just east of Clifford, contains zombies, skeletons, ghosts, headstones and creepy crawlers, with many of them lit up for night viewing.

And if the wind isn’t blowing too hard, Robertson hooks up a fogger.

The display will come down Tuesday or Wednesday, he said, but a new one won’t be too far off.

“Drive by for Christmas, too,” he said.
