Americus-- One street in Americus attracts thousands of trick or treaters each year and the reason why is pretty obvious.

The homeowners at one Lee Street house have worked eight hours getting this century old house ready for little ghosts and goblins--stretching cotton into spider webs and putting up black lights and playing creepy music.

There are other spooky haunts on Lee Street. Homeowners say they try not to frighten folks away. Sol Laso says, "The kids will enjoy it and that is what we are looking for."

Lee Street is such a popular place to trick or treat that one neighbor says she bought 40 bags of candy last year and it wasn't enough for all the trick or treaters.
