Diane and Preston Meyer could be considered the Addams Family of Burbank.
For 20 years they have been conjuring up ghostly fun for neighbors with their haunted house attraction. This year, the theme is Nightmare at the Museum. A building constructed in front of their home is divided into several rooms — Ice Age, Egyptian and Aztec — displaying articles that correspond with the themes.
The attraction began as part of a birthday celebration for their daughter, who was born on Oct. 26.
"A couple times we had her party on Halloween and the trick-or-treaters wanted to know what was going on inside, and the next year the public came in, and it became bigger and bigger and bigger," she said.
For many years, they created a haunted house in the front part of their home and had their daughter's birthday party in the back of the house. The attraction started in the living room, down through the dining room and kitchen, then back down the hall.
