More scenes of North Platte, where there are more Halloween scenes per capita than any city in America.

That's not really true, but most everyone likes to tell tales this time of year, just to scare you. Besides, all over North Platte, people are decorating their yards with entertaining, spooky characters.

North Platte definitely has more than its share of nifty yard decorations as Halloween approaches. We snapped a few photos recently of some in the middle of town.

If you'd like us to publish yours, just email your favorite photos to george@northplattebulletin.com. We'll be eager to help scare people with you.
