A family has gone above and beyond for their favorite time of the year to pull of premature baby’s first halloween.
The Banfields spend nearly three weeks putting up decorations to create a spooky and intense halloween house at their Trelander estate located in Truro. They also put up a shed that turned out to be the most decorated in their neighbourhood, and quite possibly their whole city.
The Halloween decoration involves ghouls in their house, skeletons at the shed as well as skulls on the from yard. There are giant weaves of spider webs that seem to consume their entire exterior. The family also put up an array of laser and disco lights as well as fog machines.
They also plan to have a scary movies projected onto their windows with a lot of weird sounds.
Ashley Banfield is the mind behind the whole charitable yearly event. Ashley’s father adores halloween and the family felt they should put something together for kids in the neighborhood. They family often invites families from far and wide who come in their favorite character’s Halloween costume. For this event, the family expects a few people from as far as Plymouth and St Austell.
Each year, for more than a decade, the family has always had Halloween decorations. The couple had a premature baby this year, so they wanted to use this event to raise some money for the premature charity Bliss.
Next year at Little Mouse we intend to produce our own premature baby halloween clothes.
