A Boo-tiful Recovery

Some neighbors choose the spookiest holiday of the year to turn their front yards into something unforgettable for trick-or-treaters. Stan Munro and Suzi Campanaro of Syracuse, New York, are one of those couples. In past years, an alien and his UFO landed in their front lawn. Another time, it was a zombie school bus. Their 2018 display was modest because Campanaro was in need of a kidney transplant.

Her niece stepped up as a donor and she had successful surgery. So this year’s display is bigger and better than ever – a Dracula’s castle that soars taller than the house.

“This one’s kind of special,” Stan Munro told
