Video: Epic Halloween Light Show Moves To A New House But Keeps On Playing The Hits
Over in Riverside, Kevin Judd of Creative Lighting Displays has been putting on an impressive Halloween light show for the past few years. The set-up this year features a jack-o-lantern and its backup singers crooning current pop hits. The annual display delights many, sometimes drawing as many as 2,000 people a night to come see it, Curbed LA reports. The crowds haven't always pleased Judd's neighbors, and the Euclid Management Homeowners Association ended up banning his light show in 2012. But, Judd could not be stopped. This year, he put up his show at a friend's house nearby that is across from a park where people can gather to watch the show. That show got shut down on Sunday, but now, he's secured block party permits that enable him to run the light show at certain times. You can find the schedule and parking information for the light show on his Facebook page here.
