As October starts, so does the anticipation of Halloween. It's the second biggest retail holiday in America, according to the National Retail Federation. In 2021, more than 50% of Americans celebrated the holiday, and total spending on the holiday came to $10.1 billion, with $3.2 billion on decorations alone, according to the NRF.
So it's no surprise to already see homes and yards around Lane County transforming into haunted areas decorated with graveyards, skeletons, spiderwebs, spooky monsters and the like.
Similar to The Register-Guard's annual holiday light display list and map, this year The R-G is asking readers to submit their Halloween-decorated homes and yards that are worth driving or walking by. We'll compile the list and create a map of Halloween displays in Lane County.

To have your home included in the list and in the map, send an email to email@example.com with your street address, name and contact information (only the address will be published) and any details about what the display includes.
