RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — It’s no treat for a Southern California Halloween lover after police shut down his gigantic music-and-light show.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise says Kevin Judd used 12,000 lights to create the display at his friends’ home in Riverside. The lights were synchronized to music, such as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Last week, Judd and his friends Melanie and Mark Betty began offering a half-hour nightly show. Hundreds of people showed up with their kids to dance or hang out at a nearby park.
But on Sunday, police responded to noise and traffic complaints and shut down the display.
Judd says it’s disappointing and he isn’t sure whether he’ll stage more shows next year. Judd says he might look into getting a permit or renting commercial space.
But as the Witching Hour approaches the house comes alive.
