Here are some you shouldn’t miss:

  • 2608 59th St. | Paint me like one of your dead girls. We would like to think that Bob Ross came back as a skeleton for this painterly display of spiders, ghosts and bones — be sure to stop by the home’s little mini gallery stocked with locally made art before moving on to the next location.
  • 2115 H St. | The red nose of death. Not for the faint of the heart, this carnival of souls in Midtown features undead clowns and the most death-defying tightrope walker we’ve ever seen.
  • 1216 39th St. | Does anyone else hear that clock? Bring the horror of “Stranger Things” to life with this ambitious recreation of a scene from season four.
