Bayonne Halloween display continues decades-long tradition

A Halloween tradition known as "Frightmare on 16th Street" is continuing this month in Bayonne.



Since 1976, the Cannella family has put out a spooky display at their home.



This year, there are new additions, including the smoldering zombie and "See-Through Cindy."



It's all the work of Tom Cannella, who says he started hosting haunted houses since he was 9 years old.



"I'll keep going as long as I can and when I'm gone, I told my family to put me in a glass coffin so that I can sit on the porch and watch everything going on over the years," Cannella says.



The display is available every night at 7:30 p.m. The house is located at 16th Street and JFK Boulevard.
