Your Halloween decor is probably suitably creepy, but it’s got some stiff competition. A California couple transformed their home into a real-life Pirates of the Caribbean, and it kind of wins the holiday.
Carmen and Travis Long love Halloween so much, their neighbors and passersby thought their decorations were legit and called the fire department. The pair decided to go with a Pirates of the Caribbean theme, complete with raging sea battle. This meant their home needed to look like it was on fire. And based on the number of times the fire department’s been called, it does!
According to the Longs, the realistic, fiery decor was created with a satin cloth, orange and red lights, and a fan. They added some smoke machines and voilà: a house that looks like it’s burning down.
In an interview with a local news station, the pair explained they created the spectacle for the public, and they encourage people to stop by and check it out.
So, if you’re in the Riverside, California area, you can catch the show on weekends from 7-9 p.m. PT, because they’re still trying to be considerate of their neighbors, despite scaring them nearly to death.
