Do Not Allow Your Kids to See These Photos!
OB gets into Halloween. Obviously, no longer just a kid’s thing – the front porches and yards of OB residences prove that all kinds of people – get into it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe set out with camera in hand to capture just how much Ocean Beach is into this un-holiday holiday.

We saw many graveyards, ghosts, spiders, pumpkins of course, and webs.  Even a shark!

(hey, just a hint: you can’t just grab last years Christmas angelhair and spread it out for spiders’ webs – ya gotta do more if anything)

We found some wonderful, ghoulish displays – and hey, we couldn’t get everyone’s and we couldn’t get all the best – but we did find some of the best. (If you think yours or a neighbor’s yard deserved mention, send us a pic via obragblog@gmail.com )

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo follow us along – and really, the folks on Brighton deserve a hearty round of Halloween applause, as in total, that street had some of the best.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust before the alley on the last block of Brighton, we also found Tiki Port Bob next to his pirate of yesteryear. Wow!

Here is some detail – check out the upstairs window:

Eyes up!

Then, near the end of Brighton Ave., we found a motherlode of frightening monsters, skeletons and pirates – in an alcove off the alley.  Unbelievable!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMuch like some neighborhoods of upscale Point Loma really get into Christmas displays, here – the folks of lower Brighton really get into their own displays. Ecck! Pity the poor kids who happen upon this alley. Here are some details:

Misinformation runs rampant. Halloween isn’t a holiday.
