South Hill home weaves giant spider web | Community Spirit
Creepy crawlers are taking over one South Hill home making it a must see for Halloween. A larger than life spider web boasting giant spiders is beckoning trick or treaters to stop by the home on Overbluff Drive on Halloween night.
Russ Lundberg has been weaving the spider web for the last ten years or so, and his wife Sara says it’s been fun every step of the way.
“It’s just something that everybody loves,” said Sara. The giant web is made out of rope and extends from the lawn to the roof. The spiders look like they came from the set of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and are positioned on the web and across the front walk ready to greet any trick or treater willing to brave the porch.
Sara said it’s been a neighborhood attraction every year. The preschool down the street takes a walk to visit the spiders every year. One little boy stopped by the house during the summer one year to ask where the spider lived.
“We’ve had several generations of spiders,” said Sara, many spiders have been stolen from the display over the years. The web used to be closer to the street, but was moved to extend from the house to deter theft.
Despite the spider thieves, Russ spends an afternoon every fall bringing the spiders to life, and Sara said that their doorbell gets a workout come Halloween night. The Lundberg’s spider display is located at 1329 E. Overbluff Drive.
