COMSTOCK PARK - Comstock Park's Westgate community seems like a normal neighborhood, but in October things get really spooky. It's not a place you'll find your typical trick-or-treat stops. "Our lawn is the haunting of storybook hollow," explains Jennifer Dunahee. The theme, Storybook Hollow, is pretty frightful. You'll find a twisted version of 'Alice in Wonderland" and "Hansel and Gretel" where villains rise from the grave to haunt their fabled foes. Every corner is a scary detail made from scratch. "We start building in July. It takes us a week to set up. My husband builds the big stuff like the big gypsy wagon and the frames for the tombstones then I go in and decorate,"said Dunahee.
Westgate Park may be closed until next spring but it is a great place for a little tranquility this time of the year.
