Scaring Up A Little Community



    Bob Schiro has the kind of personality that seems to bring people together. His elaborate Halloween displays are designed to have exactly the same effect. (Published Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012)

    Bob Schiro's Halloween displays have come a long way since his first one at age 10.

    He says that year's haunted house consisted mostly of sheets draped from the rafters of his family's garage. Bob charged friends ten cents to tour it. He made 20 cents.

    Over the past decade his displays have become increasingly elaborate. Last year's pirate ship was 50-feet long. This year's haunted house in San Jose's Cambrian neighborhood is three stories high.

    Schiro expects more than three thousand people to visit his home on Halloween.
