Rather than throwing out this year’s Halloween costume, one Twin Cities man hopes you donate it to a good cause. Ryan Ridgley has a collection drive set up outside his Richfield, Minn. home.
It’s Halloween, which means it’s finally time for you and the kids to go trick-or-treating. Our WCCO This Morning reporter, Ali Lucia, found one Haunted House in Richfield that’s giving away treats with a twist.
Halloween is one of those holidays where some tend to take there decorating to another level. While most of us will put out a few jack-o-lanterns, maybe a few spider webs, one house in Richfield puts the rest to shame.
Ryan Ridgley makes no secret of his love of Halloween. “I’d say this year the favorite is the guillotine,” Ridgley said. In his Richfield yard, the scary and supernatural come to life. His layout is planned months in advance, and he makes most of the eerie items by hand. His Halloween perfection takes time and money. “I can’t say the exact amount because my girlfriend will get upset,” he said. “There was a comma in it a long time ago.” But for Ridgley, the bigger the display, the bigger the turnout. And the bigger turnouts provide more opportunity to help others.
