Ray Gates enjoys transforming his Havelock house and yard into a celebration of the holiday

Published: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 08:30 PM.

Gates explains that his father was an over-the-road truck driver and his mother worked the night shift. As a child, Gates would stay up late at night watching classic films, many of them horror movies.

“Those were the classics that got me interested,” Gates said.

He spent Saturday getting ready for his big night tonight. 

“I’ve got to make some repairs,” he said. “I’ve actually got a witch on a trolley system but she got hung up last night and decapitated herself.”

Such are the problems in Ray Gates’ world.

“I’ve still got an insane asylum to build,” he said. “It’s an engineering nightmare.”

But he wouldn’t have it any other way.
