After spending between 100 and 150 hours to turn his yard into "Nightmare on 4th Street," Richfield resident Ryan Ridgley has created perhaps one of the most creative Halloween displays in the metro.
According to WCCO, Ridgley's display, which features a crime scene, creepy lighting and tombstones, is what he calls a labor of love, with much of the displays being homemade with chicken wire, Styrofoam and zip ties.
However, Ridgley passion for Halloween goes beyond his creative display, WCCO reports. After the holiday, he plans to put a box in his front yard to collect kids costumes for charity. He told WCCO that kids often want to have different costume each year, and by donating an already used one gives many children that opportunity they otherwise may not have.
All the costumes will be washed, sorted and donated to local charity.
