Focus: Favorite Halloween Haunts

It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween. That’s because it is.

So, everywhere in the Rumson-Fair Haven area there are reminders of the spooky season. Over the years, people have outdone decorations of the past and, in some cases, never managed to measure up to those unforgettable houses many of us visited as a kid.

So, to set the mood for the day, take a look back at some the finest Rumson-Fair Haven Halloween sightings. Your favorite? What tops these haunts? Your house? Send us a photo, if you dare!

Happy Halloween! (And don’t forget to click to enlarge and scroll!)
