It was skeleton day for Jeff Bull as he set out a box full of them for his annual Halloween display at his house at 23 S. Lombard Ave. in East Wenatchee on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022. "The neighbors think I'm a Satan worshipper," he said, "We just like Halloween." He said he started decorating when he bought the house in 1988 and has continued to fill his yard and porch with more and more Halloween decorations. He said he keeps about 10-percent of the display up all year. Five of the ten years he operated a fireworks stand have been to fund this infatuation he said. Every weekend and most nights he will be setting it up now that the holiday is approaching. He has a shed and storage trailer filled with things to spook including seven projectors he shows scenes with. He said his display normally attracts 100 to 150 children. "We've become legendary in the neighborhood," Bull said.
