Story of death, bad choices not your average trick-or-treat event
BATON ROUGE- One family has a different take on Halloween.
Instead of going door-to-door, they let the visitors come to them for a lesson about making the right choices.
In their yard, off O'Neal, the Santiago family has a map of decisions and stops along the way.
"We wanted to put a little twist on it," said John Santiago.
Their display includes scenes of crashes due to drunk driving and texting while driving, consequences of drug use and other scenarios.
"Life is full of choices, and our life is the result of the choices we make," said Georgina Santiago.
Their display has been around for nine years and they are planning an expanded version next year.
