The Gismundis home on Blackbird Lane is the winner of the 2012 Halloween Horror House contest.
It was eerie and ghoulish – a Victorian hearse being pulled by a horse winding through the upended graves of an old cemetery. But, the display and its creator, who traditionally dresses in costume on Halloween for some good natured, scary antics, delighted trick or treaters and others who came to view the handmade decorations.

Levittown Community Council has selected the Blackbird Lane home of Cira and Frank Gismundi as its 2012 Halloween Horror House winner. According to Cira, her husband Frank loves Halloween and takes great pride in building the wooden figures he displays each year.

The Gismundis will be recognized at the Levittown Community Council’s WinterFest, to be held on Feb. 16, 2013 at Levittown Hall.

Runner up in the Halloween Horror House contest was the Mandracchia Family of Tanager Lane. Although many of their decorations weren’t displayed due to the impending storm, what was exhibited was enough to impress. Like the Gismundis, the Mandracchias make many of their own decorations and dress in costume for some added Halloween fun.
