Vampires, Tyrannosaurus rexes, Ghostbusters and princesses traipsed up and down Third Avenue in Two Harbors on Halloween this week.

Many houses within a three-block radius got into the spirit of the holiday with elaborate decorations, eerie music and plenty of treats.

The Uremovich house had a line of kids waiting patiently for their turn on a zip line the family installed on their front lawn.

The house also featured gravestones created by Nadine Uremovich's sixth-grade students.

Students stopped by to take photos with their artwork and grab a piece of candy while they were there.

Further down the block, Laura Plactek's yard had an inflatable dragon and festive songs like "The Monster Mash" playing overhead.

"You know, with how many of us get into this, we're actually thinking about requesting the city close off these two blocks next year," Plactek said. "Since it's so busy with the kids. But it's a really fun time."
