Babylon home hosts Halloween light show as Dr. Fauci gives go ahead for trick-or-treating
Long Islanders headed to a Halloween light show in Babylon Monday, as one the nation’s top doctors said it’s safe to trick-or-treat outside this year.
The Halloween House on Wilson Street offers many frightening displays, like an electric chair.
Something a little less scary is Dr. Anthony Fauci giving the go-ahead for people to feel safe going trick-or-treating this year.
Many residents at the Halloween House say they planned to let their children trick-or-treat no matter what officials said.
They even celebrated the holiday early at the house of Kellie and Greg Meigel, who started the tradition of the Halloween House over a decade ago.
Greg Meigel says he has around 20,000 lights and around 30 moving figures, a lot of which he says he makes himself.
The exhibit is free and open to visitors every night from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Donations are accepted for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Greg Meigel says it takes him around a month to set it all up.
“It’s all for the kids,” he says. “I started it for my kids and now my son is actually doing this with us.”
Dr. Fauci encourages everyone to enjoy the upcoming holidays but says everyone should be vaccinated.
