Paz family celebrates Halloween with lights, spooky decorations at Troutdale home

PMG PHOTO: CHRISTOPHER KEIZUR - The lights at the Paz Family Holiday House will remain on from dusk until 10 p.m. daily through the end of the month. It's a holiday tradition unlike any other in East Multnomah County — a drive out to Troutdale to see what the Paz family has created in their front yard.

PMG PHOTO: CHRISTOPHER KEIZUR - There are plenty of interesting details to discover when visiting the Paz Family Holiday House, 1722 S.W. Hensley Rd. You could spend hours discovering all the small details decorating Linda and Rick Paz's home for Halloween. There are witches, ghosts, skeletons, jack-o-lanterns, and scarecrows. One skeleton decked out in Oregon Duck gear is on his way to Eugene for some football; a coven of witches are brewing up something strange in the corner; and a massive spider spins its web up in the tree branches.

As with Christmas, Easter, and the other holidays, the Paz's neighbors have gotten involved, hanging their own lights and putting spooky decorations in their yards. All together it creates a festive Halloween Lane, 1722 S.W. Hensley Road, that is free to attend and perfect for the whole family.

Unlike during Christmas, which has more decorations in the back of the home, the best way to experience Halloween at the Paz home is on foot. Park along Hensley Road and walk up the driveway to see all the decorations.
