Walk down Clinton Place in Hackensack and you'll notice a common thread.

Nearly every house is fully-covered in Halloween decorations.

Sometime over the course of the past three decades it became customary for homeowners on the block to give the holiday everything they've got.

The result? Nearly 8,000 trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.

Clinton Place is unquestionably the most popular street for trick-or-treating in Hackensack -- and maybe in Bergen County.

Check out how the houses are coming along this year.

The previous owners of this house had a massive spider hanging from the balcony that he'd drop on trick-or-treaters' heads. The realtor made it clear: You've got to keep the tradition going, somehow, at least.

The Jack-O-Lantern house is being renovated -- but it seems like residents on Lookout Avenue (one street over) have re-homed them.
