The Central Coast is home to a lot of Halloween displays, but an Atascadero man is taking it to a whole new level.

The homeowner at 7720 Cortez Avenue is inviting people to drive by anytime to see his "Spooktacular Lights and Sights" display.

He has a lot of lights and props that are sure to turn heads, and he hopes the display helps keep the spooky tradition alive.

"I really enjoyed halloween as a kid. I come from a large family and we really enjoyed halloween and I want to make sure that is carried on through the new generation. That's why I do it, and I enjoy doing it, I enjoy scaring folks and I enjoy making people laugh" said Mark J. Russo, who created the display.

Live actors and plenty of candy will be at the home on Halloween.

The display is mostly geared towards younger kids, but everyone is invited.

Russo says he started setting up the display in August.
