Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio Halloween has become the second biggest decorating holiday of the year, just behind Christmas, and that means people are putting a lot of time and money into making their yards look great.

Ethan Wilson looks proudly at his front yard freak show. "The wheel of death, the Frankenstein chamber, the wheel of heads," he pointed out.

He lives near 500 West and 900 North in American Fork and says he's spent over $2,500 on decorations of aliens, skeletons and other creepy things.

Drive down the street to 300 North and Center Street and you'll see a yard completely filled with friendly witches and smiling pumpkins.

Jessica Awtrey says her neighbor spends weeks putting the decorations. "Sometimes I'm, kinda like, mad. We'll never compete with that," she laughed.

Just two examples of how far people will go to make Halloween fun in American Fork.
