RIVERFRONT DRIVE., DOWNTOWN BEND
On the 100 block of NW Riverfront Drive, Tucked away around the corner from Miller's Landing Park, this haunted house is easy to miss.
Covered top to bottom in cob webs and littered with homemade coffins and tombstones, this house on Daniel Duke Way has a reputation for going all out for Halloween—11 years strong. Haunted house creator Darren Hill says it's not finished yet—he still has to add strobe lights and a spooky soundscape. Hill's first passion is decorating for Christmas; every year he covers his home with 60,000 to 80,000 lights. You can also find his decoration handy work in downtown Bend during the holidays.
BILYEU WAY, NORTHEAST BEND V V V
Susan Neal, the owner of this haunted abode, adds to her skeleton crew each year. She says her eastside neighborhood gets a lot of trick or treaters—and this year she's giving out full-size candy bars.
