Description: This nifty little Halloween yard haunt returns for its third Halloween. The display consists of tombs, static skeletons, ominous but subtle music, and a couple of nice effects, including a phantom figure that periodically passes through a front window – pretty impressive for an amateur effort.

The Van Oaks Cemetery eschews of crude shocks; you will see neither blood nor chainsaw, only atmosphere. It may be a little too low-key to warrant a trip all on its own, but if you happen to be in the area, it is worth stopping by for a brief visit.

The cemetery will be open October 13-31 this year, 7-11pm. Full effects and lighting may not be up until the final week of October.
