Monster mash



The home of Frank Knowles of Sawyer Brook Circle in South Portland is ready for Halloween. “Each year I add a new monster to the crowd awaiting trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. That night I have horror music playing, a fog machine and strobe lights flashing, which make the figures seem to be moving. The catch is, I am in one of the monsters, so the tradition in the neighborhood is to figure out which one I am before I grab them when they come up to get candy,” Knowles said. The South Portland resident has made each one of the life size figures and even makes some of the masks.
