Photo: Too soon!
Hords of ghouls – I mean residents – made the treak this weekend to see a parade of skeletons that rose from the dead as the quiet cross road between Common and Goden known as Hillcrest made its annual transformation into Hellcrest, the spookiest road in the Tombs of Homes.
Word of advice: The street will be blocked off and police will be patrolling the area on Halloween, Monday, Oct. 31..
The nice fall weather brought folks from around Belmont and surrounding towns to view the assortment of active skeletons, jack-o-lanterns and spiderwebs.
For more than a decade, nearly every home along the still-to-be-paved road decorated their property with skeletrotial aplomb. This year’s collection had a distinct British feel with Mary Poppins with her parrot head umbrella, St. George and the Dragon as well as a recently deceased monarch with her pet corgi.
“Too soon,” said one observer.
