This house has the most epic Halloween display in Toronto

If you're looking to get into the spooky spirit for Halloween in Toronto, a visit to Glenlake Ave. and Dorval Rd. might be in store. The house at the southeast corner of this intersection has been completely decked out in all manner of creepy decorations and props for the occasion.
