Halloween is in full swing in Sunbury.

Resident Luke Perks has been decorating his house with a spectacular Halloween-themed light show since 2016, trying to recapture some of the magic he experienced on a trip to Disneyland.

Every October his Withers Close house is decked out in all things Halloween, from glowing pumpkins to cackling witches.

The spooky and kooky decorations take up to a month to put in place.

Mr Perks said he loves the atmosphere when local kids react to the decorations.

About 400 children visited the decorations last year and Mr Perk is hoping for a big turnout again this year.

His Halloween house has inspired other Sunbury residents to embrace the occasion and there are now several houses decked out as part of Sunbury Halloween Houses.

The houses will be on show until Wednesday October 31. For a list of properties involved go to the Sunbury Halloween Houses Facebook page.
