Tonight is the night for trick or treaters to take to the streets and celebrate Halloween with a number of houses throughout the region decorated and ready to hand out treats.
Local resident Nakayla Murnane has decorated her house at 27 Penny Lane, Branyan, encouraging those brave enough to visit tonight.
“After a recent trip to Costco we noticed the 3m high witch and we were not leaving without,” she said.
“While it was meant to be a small set up, I couldn’t resist the urge to make it as scary as possible.
“Those who visit can take photos sitting next to the scary monsters, but they should be warned, you might get a little boo.”
A family home in Belle Eden Estate has also been transformed into a gloomy Halloween shipwreck, haunted by pirate skeletons keeping a close watch on their buried treasure.
Bundaberg man Joey Heininger's house at Palmero Avenue now resembles something out of a horror movie, and it's all in the name of celebrating the spookiest time of year.
The local father has spent many months crafting a range of displays to fit into his pirate-themed Halloween house and he said it was something that gave him great enjoyment.
“I’ve been working on this display for the past year, most of which has just been scouring social media and other places for bargain buys,” he said.
“The bulk of the construction has taken place in the three months leading up to October.
“I have been lucky to have my family and so many friends help out here and there.”
Joey's front yard is now filled with buried treasure, the skulls of former plunderers and plenty of warnings from the spirits that now rest in the space.
It's not the first time he has taken part in the Halloween house extravaganza.
Last year he and his wife Alannah took on a toxic-waste theme, with more than 100 door-knockers enjoying trick or treating in his neighbourhood.
Joey said Halloween had been a favourite holiday for him ever since he was a boy.
“When I was young I lived in NSW and fell in love with theme parks when mum bought me up to the Gold Coast for a holiday,” he said.
“So I really love theming and Halloween is a perfect time to try my hand at theming our yard.
“I also really enjoy the craft side of it.”
“I’m also a dad, so creating exciting memories for my son and his friends is what it is really all about.”
The Heininger Halloween set up is available to view right up to Halloween on Monday 31 October.
