Halloween is Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023, and one way to celebrate it (other than the usual Trick-Or-Treating with kids) is to venture out and appreciate some of the amazing decorations created by your B-Town neighbors.

These types of drive-around and admire activities are usually reserved for more standard holiday-themed homes, but we think this should become a new Halloween tradition for Burien.

We know there are many displays out there, but some of the highlights we’ve seen for 2023 include:

  • The very funny Dead/Skeleton Barbie Display in Gregory Heights.
  • Lots of weird, pirate-themed creepiness at 16431 13th Ave SW:
  • The animated, synchronized-to-music display (to a low-powered FM radio station you can tune into at 102.1FM) at a house just south of Gregory Heights Elementary School on the east side of 16th Ave SW.
  • The Dill House located where Maplewild Ave SW intersects with SW 172nd in Three Tree Point, with the usual whimsical scenarios as displayed by Greg and Rhonda Dill.


Below is video of the animated music display in Gregory Heights featuring the song “Spooky Scary Skeletons,” as filmed by Scott Schaefer:
