Milton’s Halloween enthusiasts are getting ready for the season.  

On Oct. 13, Phil and Lois Watson, aided by their 14-year-old grandson, Julian Hawkins of Janesville, were busily making final touches to a sprawling, fantastical display. The family has assembled the display for the last 20 years, Phil said. 

On Vernal Avenue, Kathy Johnson has been busy creating a charming and colorful array of flowers, pumpkins, scarecrows and other Halloween trinkets that adorn the 1868-built home she shares with her husband, Rick.

On Elizabeth Street, at the home of Heidi and Edward Berebitsky, a creepy display, complete with a giant clown head and smaller severed heads hanging from the trees will greet those willing to brave the yard. 

At the Selgren home on Hilltop, Kenda said her father, David, was the decorating enthusiast. 

Jenny Quisler, John Paul Road, said her children’s enthusiasm for Halloween inspired her to adorn her home with a giant spider and cobwebs. 

Photos of various Halloween houses in Milton follow.
