JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Every October 31st you can expect to see decorated lawns filled with skeletons and pumpkins.  You can also see neighborhood children dressed up as ghosts and goblins stopping door to door stocking up on candy.

For some Region Eight neighborhoods they have parades to celebrate the fun filled holiday.

"All the neighbors come out and set up tables with goodies and candies and the kids decorate their bikes their tricks golf cars," said Paula Hughes and Staci Gibson.

It's a tradition the two neighbors started for some family fun in their neighborhood

"We make flyers and put them in everyone's mailboxes and ask them to come out about 5 45 meet in our cove we've been doing this about 8 years now."

Just down the street Tracy Parker and her husband get into the spirit by getting into  their costumes.

"Every year my husband and I enjoy getting dressed up for Halloween and surprising the kids when they come to the door," said Parker.

Although, she and her husband are empty nesters, they both find joy watching neighborhood children stop by every year.

"I so enjoy watching the kids get dressed up in their favorite costume their ballerina outfit or Spiderman costume and I enjoy watching them have a good time," said Parker.
