LOWELL, Mich. -- People celebrate Halloween in all kinds of different ways-- trick or treating, watching scary movies, going to a party.

A man in Lowell celebrates a little differently, turning his home into a haunted house for the neighborhood to enjoy.

"I want kids to have a fun, memorable Halloween," said Randall Miller.

Miller has made a haunted house at his home for the past seven years.  He makes most of the decorations, and his sons do the acting.

He keeps his haunted house open for as long as kids keep coming.

"This is what it's about, this is so much fun and it's so enjoyable," Miller said.  "Everybody getting along.  All the kids being happy and we save so much on candy... they come out and forget to get their candy because they are so scared."

Halloween isn't even Miller's biggest event.  He says the Christmas lights will go up on Tuesday and that he has a tunnel made out of LEDs that stretch from one end of his yard to the other.
