Historic Oakwood in downtown Raleigh is stunning any time of the year, but at Halloween, it’s especially Spooktacular.

The above home at 504 Oakwood Ave. draws so many crowds at Halloween, the police block off the area so trick-or-treaters can safely walk the neighborhood.

Owner, Jesse Womble, has over 50 life-sized figures that he sets up every single day so they won’t get stolen at night.

And on Halloween night, Jesse enlists help from friends and family to dress up as zombies and wander the neighborhood. 

This includes help from his cousin, Caleb Womble, and wife, Eulyn Womble, who worked on the set of The Walking Dead.

Many trick-or-treaters won’t even make it to the door for candy as the owner has so many scary things in store, such as snakes dropping down from the trees.
