Halloween displays seem more prevalent on the residential streets surrounding the downtown area than those of the inner core. Perhaps it is because there are more children in these areas. Trick or treating may also not be as popular in the inner city as so many residents live in apartment buildings and condos where children are not allowed to enter from outside the premises.
As a result, to get in the Halloween mood, I visited the Bloor West Village to photograph the displays outside the homes on the streets north of Bloor Street. It is an area where many families with young children live. Some of the decorations were quite creative. Amid the autumn colours, I regained my appreciation for the haunted season. Below are a few of the photos.
