As you plan your Halloween festivities, don’t miss some of the amazing and fun decorations and attractions that your neighbors are providing!
Fall is looking great around Charlotte, whether you’re looking for something spooky or totally kid-friendly! Check out our HUGE list of fall festivals, a big list of Halloween parties, Trick or Treat events, and our list of pumpkin patches, haunted trails and corn mazes!
We are listing a few impressive displays here. We know that there are more, and we will add to this list as long as we hear about the homeowner or resident that they would like to be listed, or if they use a website or social media to publicly promote their display. We will share as much or as little as you want!
There are a couple more that we really want to add, but we’re waiting to hear back from the homeowners!
If you do go to visit these, please be considerate of the residents, who have put so much time into the displays, as well as their neighbors.
Union Street in Concord
There are several historic homes that are decorated creatively and elaborately for Halloween on Union Street in Concord. Park on the street and visit them on foot. Definitely visit the “Troy’s Funeral Home” on the corner of Union Street and Buffalo Avenue for this incredible funeral home scene! It features several full-sized skeleton-horses pulling carriages of skeletons, and much more.
Skeletons for St. Jude’s
Skeletons for St. Jude’s a grassroots project where people decorate their yard with massive skeletons for Halloween, and invite guests to make a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. We are learning about more and more families participating, and we will add info soon with more places to see the giant skeletons.
But to start off, the family at 16028 Northstone Drive, Huntersville, has an incredible display (see above!) The display includes a 12-foot tall skeleton dressed as Thanos and 10 more skeletons dressed and posed as other Marvel heroes.
McAdenville might be best known for its Christmas lights, but the Hammond family, at 508 Chamberlain Court, McAdenville, also puts on an impressive Halloween light display, which is synchronized to music, along with a spooky yard display.
It will be taking place from October 9th to 31st, 2021. It’ll be happening from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
Look for updates on the HammondFamilyLights Facebook page.
Two people in the Elizabeth neighborhood have been creating an incredible haunt every Halloween at a house on the 2100 block of East 5th Street, between Ridgeway and Osborne. Rosemont Manor Haunt draws 1,000+ visitors on its one night of operation — Halloween. It typically includes a walk-through haunt with props, animatronics, live performers (including fire-eaters!) and multiple staged scenes.
In 2020, the attraction was a walk-by event only, but this year, the attraction will be a “hybrid” event. There will be some walk-through features for those comfortable with that (masks required), and some walk-by vignettes.
It will open on October 31st, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. Visiting is always free, but they collect donations for Greater Charlotte SPCA for animal rescue.
Follow Rosemont Manor Haunt on Facebook for updates.
If you’re close to Lincolnton (readers in Dallas, Gastonia, and Denver are) head to 411 E. Dixon Street, Lincolnton, for an impressive Halloween light show. Isenhour Lights will be taking place every day from October 15th to 31st, 2021. 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday. Follow Isenhour Lights on Facebook for updates, and to make sure that weather isn’t interfering with plans.
A family in the SouthPark area has a display of skeletons on their front yard, which might not seem that unusual, except they rearrange the display every day in October!
You can find the display on Tyndale Avenue in Beverly Woods. You can’t miss it.
Follow them on @tyndaleskeletons on Instagram to see their latest pictures!
Terror in Riverwood
Every Halloween, a Charlotte family turns their otherwise normal backyard in Steele Creek into Terror in Riverwood, a walk-through haunted maze.
The attraction is free, but donations are accepted.
Terror in Riverwood is on Springpoint Lane. Just go there and look for the fog and the cemetery.
Terror in Riverwood will be taking place:
- Friday, October 29th, 2021, 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Saturday, October 30th, 2021, 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Sunday, October 31st, 2021, 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Animatronic Candy Delivery System in Brookstone
On Halloween night only, this home in the Brookstone neighborhood (near West W.T. Harris Blvd and West Sugar Creek Road) will be delivering candy via this spooky animatronic dementor-like being. There’s also a (hopefully) not scary candy delivery system for younger kids. Both are socially distanced. The house is on Amaranthus Court, on the left as you go toward the cul-de-sac.
