PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI (NOVEMBER 2023) – The 2023 Halloween Lights Tour lit up the Pleasant
Prairie night sky this October, captivating the imaginations of thousands of visitors including
over 650 individuals who voted for their favorite displays to help select the top 5 homes with the
best décor. This year’s displays included delightful frights, bone-chilling spectacles and themes
inspired by classics like Thriller and Beetlejuice.
“We were thrilled to continue bringing the holiday excitement to our residents and visitors for
Halloween. Between the residents who decorate their homes and everyone who comes out and
enjoys the tour, we’re so grateful to all who have participated in some way,” said Sarah Howard,
Executive Director of Visit Pleasant Prairie.
Jeff and Samantha Duczak took 1st place honors with their home’s spooky skeleton and
graveyard theme and won a $100 Iguana Wana Mexican Grill & Tequila Bar gift card. Second
place honors went to Corey Brackeen’s interactive Halloween story-telling themed home,
receiving a $75 gift card to El Camino Kitchen. George and Debbie Stoeber, who took first place
for their display in 2022, took 3rd place honors this year with their Thriller-themed home and
won a $50 gift card to Johnny’Z Pour House. Fourth place and a $25 gift card to Milwaukee
Burger Company went to Stella Wax and her home’s Beetlejuice theme (which also featured
the movie synced to audio through the radio!). Rounding out the top five for 2023 was Annalisa
and Richie Stiles with their display of large skeletons and other spooky creatures alongside a
cemetery display. They were awarded a $20 gift card to Nothing Bundt Cakes. All five were
bestowed with a coveted Halloween trophy and Visit Pleasant Prairie swag.
