It's never too early to start talking about the holidays, right?

Too Early for Holiday Lights? Celebrate Halloween First!

We can admit, that talking about holiday lights in October is a bit early.  With that being said, some phenomenal Halloween decorations are popping up across the Hudson Valley including the Dellamura home in Poughkeepsie.

Since the beginning of the month, the family at 45 Kerr Road in Poughkeepsie has lit up their lawn like a haunted cemetery with everything from witches to zombies, puking skeletons and several 12-foot Halloween characters that will send a chill down your spine. Have fun walking past Bubba the "dog." Take a look at the extravagant Halloween display below. Where's your favorite Hudson Valley Halloween display?

Poughkeepsie is Die Hard and Newburgh is The Grinch. It just makes sense right? What Christmas Movie would your hometown be?
