20 Years of Spooky Fun
20 years ago, the Revolorio family moved to their Katy home at Kingsland Boulevard and Houghton across from Nottingham Elementary and quickly became a Katy legend.
This year they celebrate 20 years of decorating for Halloween and giving the Katy community something fun to follow and talk about.
“Every year we try to do something different and we take ideas from our own lives,” says Carmen Revolorio. “This year's theme was inspired by the lack of concerts in 2020!”
20 years ago, the Revolorio yard started as a cemetery. Over the years they have evolved to use skeletons to tell a story that relates to the lives of the family, and in many cases the community as well.

This year their theme is a rock concert where their band of skeletons has fun in a rock concert setting after so many concerts were canceled last year during the pandemic.
“My favorite would be this year’s and last year’s, which was the skeleton marathon race,” says Revolorio.

2020 brought panic and fear unlike anything society could imagine and the Revolorios found a way to bring the community fun despite the current situation.
“We love doing this for Halloween, seeing the smiles on people's faces as they walk by makes it all worth it,” says Revolorio.
Halloween is fun for the community but keep in mind that decorations and pumpkins should not be touched. Many Katy families share on social media that their pumpkins have been taken and decorations have been moved.
