Great halloween decorations!

Original post made by t. harris on Oct 21, 2009

Today I exited my neighborhood the 'other' way than I normally do and saw a house with the best decorations I have seen in a long time. I actually spun around to get a better look. It's a house on Mendenhall Ct. in the Meadows (You'll be able to pick it out easy enough). If you love crazy haunted house style decorations it's worth a look. Does anyone know of any other well decorated houses here in Pleasanton? Halloween brings the kid out in me and I love to see all the effort people go through to entertain the local youth.

No help yet? This is Pleasanton I know there has to be some really well decorated houses. I was wanting to make a drive by (not shooting) on a few of the top recommended houses on the way home from work tonight. I don't just mean tons of store bought foam tombstones either. Maybe I'll have to wait until Christmas to enjoy people's effort.

It's still in process, but the house on the corner of Kamp Drive and (what is it?) Helen Drive(?)in Mohr Park is always well done with handmade figures, last year the theme was Pirates of the Caribbean. There are decorations outside and you also walk into the garage. When it's done it's always really cool.

Our family always enjoys the Haunted House on Sea Eagle Court off of Shearwater in Birdland. Don't know how much time this family spends putting it together but it is easily a 10-room, separately "themed" house, complete with costumed tour guides. The structure wraps around the exterior of their's awesome!

Ok my review is in on the recomendations...
Based on front yard alone I say it goes
1. Seahawk
2. Singletree
3. Mendenhall
4. Kamp
5. Calle Reynosa
As far as actually visiting on Halloween because of backyard or sideyard decorations it might go
1. Seahawk
2. Calle Reynosa
3. Singletree
4. Kamp
5. Mendenhall
It's all very folk arty and tough to judge. Some have more decorations and some have better but less decorations. Also some seem set up to open garage doors, sideyards and even entire backyards on Hallowwen night. Thanks for the recomendations though, fun little tour.

I don't know if they are going to do it again but the Bowsers at 2426 Tapestry (bernal and 680) create a cool haunted front yard each year. It usually has light and special effects. Its spooktacular.

The house in Birdland is at 2283 Sea Eagle Court not Seahawk for those Halloween Fans. It is opened for tours on Friday and on Hallowen Night.

Woops sorry. Sea EAGLE Ct. Looks great and for 'Birdlanders' a must visit. Hope the wind isn't destroying everything

We went to Sea Eagle Court to see the haunted house. The "witch" who was obviously part of the preparation was not happy we were not neighbors or friends and was quite unwelcoming. She made it clear the fun was only for those they knew. We ended up leaving because we were made to feel so uncomfortable, even though it was clear by the crowd that the people there were more than just neighbors and friends. Too bad she couldn't enjoy screams and laughs by all.
