Unsuspecting hikers may be in for all tricks and no treat as Sembawang residents have decorated their residences for Halloween.

Two hikers from the Singapore Hikers Facebook group posted pictures of various spooky ornaments spotted while they were on their night walks. The decorations mostly light up around 8pm, according to one of the hikers in the Facebook group.

Visitors who first set foot in areas around Pakistan Road, Lagos Circle and Canada Road will be greeted by the sight of these ominous signs warning others not to trespass.

Those who enter at their own risk will find many types of Halloween decorations laid out as they follow the trail, ranging from small tombstones on the lawn to big light displays in front of the houses.

You can even interact with some of these decorations during your night walk.

The skeletons are the least of your worries, as the list of horror tropes does not stop there.

Those with coulrophobia, the fear of clowns, are also in for a frightful time as several homes spot uniquely designed clown decorations to welcome… or scare off visitors.

This is not the first time residents have decorated their houses for Halloween.

Sembawang HDB blocks have also seen horror icons like The Nun being put up when residents decorated the corridors in 2021.

But not all decorations are this extreme, as adorable jack-o’-lanterns and inflatable ghosts are also included to keep the Halloween decorations wholesome.

Other areas in Singapore are also known to celebrate Halloween in this fashion, such as the Woodgrove neighbourhood in Woodlands.

The residents of Woodgrove have celebrated Halloween since 2007, and also hold a physical trick or treat event every year for anyone interested in celebrating the occasion.
