The Glenmerry Bowl has some seasonal characters on display

Creatures are crawling out of the gutters at Glenmerry Bowl this Halloween.

Sean Sandnes, son of alley owner Ron Sandnes, and a self confessed Halloween fanatic, is the creator of the Halloween haunt.

Originally, the spooky display was set up in front of his house.

“There was too much vandalism, so this is the new home for it,” explained his dad, who provided the safe retreat for the ghoulish characters.

Each fall, Sean  travels to Spokane in hopes of discovering an even scarier monster to add to the growing and growling collection.

The newest addition to the eerie family is the motion and sound animated werewolf.

“Stand back,” warned Ron. “He will spit (fake) blood at you after he chews on that leg.”

He added the display was especially spooky on Friday and Saturday night during disco bowling.

“The eyes really stand out, and you never know what Chuckie might do.”

The impressive display will be howling until Nov 2.
