5 Towns with Frightfully Delightful Halloween Traditions

Oct 30 2015

It’s almost spooky how much Americans love Halloween.

The National Retail Foundation says the 157 million who are celebrating the holiday this year will shell out $6.9 billion, with the average American planning to drop $74 on decorations, candy, costumes, and other treats.

It’s a holiday loved by young and old. Eight in 10 Millennials report they are already planning something festive with friends. We even get our furry companions into the act, with $350 million going to pet costumes alone in 2014.

While Oct. 31 is the night the ghouls come out from “ghost to ghost,” a number of locales really trick out their towns and offer week- and monthlong extravaganzas.

Listed below are five American towns that stand out for their celebrations — and their real estate markets are anything but ghoulish.
