Lake Charles man turns home into Halloween light show

By Crystal Price - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A Lake Charles man is putting more work in to his Halloween display this year with a special light show in tuned with spooky music.

Mike Fraser has been decorating his home for six years, with different skeleton dolls and life size characters he has collected over the years.

"People like to call me the Halloween man," said Fraser. "I decorate my home every year."

In addition to the decorations, Fraser also puts up more than 5,000 lights throughout his entire yard.  

But this year Fraser wanted to try something different with the lights.

"This year I wanted to take the music and plug it in and coordinate it with the lights as they come on," said Fraser.

The light show has drawn in neighbors and friends within the community.

"It's pretty extensive and he goes all out every year," said Bob Phillips, a resident in the community. "If you look around and see it is kind of a land mark in his neighborhood."

Despite the attention from the community, Fraser said he primarily puts on the light show to spread some Halloween spirit to his community.

"One of the things I love about Halloween is it brings the kid out in all of us," said Fraser. "Everybody can be a child again, it's just wonderful."

Once Halloween is over Fraser will begin preparing for his Christmas display that will also include lights and music.

The light show is located at 6904 Shadow Lane in Lake Charles.
