- Since he was a kid, Joseph garcia love decoration since Halloween. This is something he and his mom did together, and now he enjoys doing it with his two daughters, ages 4 and 6. He and his daughters begin to decorate their Alamo Ranch at home in the middleSeptember with skeletons, pumpkins and hay bales, but this year he wanted to add something new to the decor. He really wanted to get a 12-foot skeleton with “LED eyes that light up to watch passers-by” that came out in 2020 at Home Depot, but they were still sold out. After checking every 2 weeks at Home deposit and even by joining “a 12 foot skeleton Facebook group to help increase his chances of landing the decorations he wanted” he finally got lucky! In August, he not only found the original skeleton, but he also found the most recent addition, “a 12-foot skeleton with a pumpkin head and a light-up torso” named the Hell Pumpkin. Neighbors like to take their photos with the skeletons, and Garcia and his daughters love to get into the mind of Halloween! (mySanAntonio.com)

There will also be pumpkin fields and Halloween festivals, and some of them will need masks to walk around the booths for COVID-19 security reasons.
