Decked Out: Wayne Couple Create A Halloween Wonderland And All Are Invited

WAYNE, N.J. -- It's almost time and Gina and Rich Martorana, who have been planning for Halloween since May, are beyond excited.

The Wayne couple, who love the holidays, are happy to show off their wares --  and their  crazy Halloween decorations to county residents both in person and online.

"My goal, when I moved to a house, was to go all out and decorate," said Gina.

And so, for the past three years, the couple has stuck to that mantra, each year, adding pieces and outdoing themselves.

This year, they went "way bigger " --  think close to 60 inflatables including a 20-foot black cat, a 20-foot Frankenstein, an 18 foot Grim Reaper, a rotating Haunted House, a 16-foot pirate ship, a Halloween train and a 20-inch spider. Not to mention lots of lights.

Lights are on from 4 p.m. to midnight, with inflatables in full view starting at 8 a.m.

Come Oct. 31 there are also life-sized animatronics along the driveway as well as people dressed as horror characters walking around.

Last year, they handed out about 150 goodies and are ready to double that this year. Gina personally makes candy sacks for each child filled with 12 candies and treats.

And continue to check the page post October. Gina said Christmas is her favorite holiday (Halloween is her husband's) and to that end, they will be doing it up again -- bigger -- come December.
