Fall is the perfect season for them to host their annual house tour. Autumn is the peak season in Lambertville, as the leaves start to work their magic and put on show for the tourists and day trippers (some of the best shopping I know of is in Lambertville, and in the adjacent town of New Hope, PA, which is a mere footbridge away). Seriously...if you're in this neck of the woods and looking for a day trip or overnighter, head to Lambertville and New Hope over the next few weeks while nature is still doing its thing.
Walking from house to house, I couldn't believe how decked out the porches were. Even the Federal-style homes with the smallest of porches decorated every inch of space:
But some homes with a little more frontage went all out. These folks created an homage to the Pirates of the Caribbean:
And just next door, I was in love with this ghoulish display on the front porch that extended all across the front yard:
But not HALF as amazed as I was when I returned at night to see it like this!
(Sorry for the blurry photos...the blacklights made it tough to shoot.)
Clearly, they love Halloween. Love.
I hope you enjoyed this little porch tour. I'm linking up with the lovely Melissa at The Inspired Room, who's hosting a little Fall Drive By. If you like
stalking looking at other homes as much as I do, head over to Melissa's blog home for a look-see at the other houses on her bloggerific barnstorm.
