Raising the dead: Halloween light shows popping up across US

Do you hear that? A hauntingly good song is echoing down your street and there’s a good chance it’s coming from your neighbor’s yard.

While most people prefer their street to be nice and quiet, Halloween is one of those times when most of us make exceptions. After all, trick-or-treaters are hardly silent and, sometimes, the neighbors aren’t either.

We like these people — the ones that spend months putting together a light-and-music show to some of the holiday’s best hits or a trendy new song. We think they deserve a bigger audience, which is why we scoured YouTube (not a bad way to spend a Wednesday) and found some of the best Halloween light shows out there. Enjoy!

Oh, we meant to ask: If you have a light show somewhere in Arizona, we would love to see it! Zip us an email to keep us updated.
