MARBLEHEAD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Trick-or-treaters in Marblehead are getting a chance to walk the plank as they carry their bags of candy down Pleasant Street, thanks to one architect's huge Halloween display.
Tom Saltsman built the large replica ship attached to his garage, complete with barnacles and mussels, real seaweed, and a 30-foot bow piercing the sky. He told WBZ NewsRadio's Kevin Coleman it isn't the first year he's done this.
"One year it was a spaceship, another year it was a dragon," he said. "This year, it's a shipwreck. It's turned into something that the community seems to really enjoy, so we open it up for a couple of nights and people come and walk through it."
The interior of the ship is done out with the same theme, and Saltsman said it takes about two months to put the whole display together.
"My neighbors are really patient, so I definitely appreciate that," he said. "I have no idea what to expect, because it does get out to social media, and a lot of people slow down for weeks checking it out."
