"Stranger Things"-inspired Halloween decor in the Smith family's front yard includes "rotting" pumpkins, an alphabet wall and a "Mind Flayer."

Cars tend to slow when passing the Smith home lately.

Inspired by their love of “Stranger Things,” the family – parents Lund and Jenn and kids Kaelyn, Devyn and Lund Jr. – decked out their South Los Altos home with scenes from the hit Netflix television show. 

Kaelyn, 13, designed the layout herself, her father said. This year marks the family’s first decorating for Halloween.

“We decided to go big this year,” Lund Smith Sr. said. “Harry Potter,” he teased, could be next year’s theme.

A slideshow of photos by Town Crier photographer Megan V. Winslow is below – to view the decorations in person, drive down Montclaire Way – near Loyola Corners.
