PLAINFIELD, Illinois – Some Plainfield residents caused some controversy when they created a Stranger Things-themed Halloween attraction.
The display is based on a scene from the popular Netflix series and impressively levitates the character “Max Mayfield” above the ground. The figure is said to be made out of pool noodles.
It has garnered national attention after a viral video was posted across social media.
However, due to the large crowds it draws, there has been some controversy surrounding the display – leading to a neighbor being upset when a visitor pulled into his driveway to see it.
After this incident, a heated discussion ensued and the police were called to the house. On Sunday, the family posted on social media that they are considering pulling the plug on their Halloween display – but have since been overwhelmed by the public’s supportive response.
WGN tried to speak to the neighbor who wasn’t happy with the display, but they weren’t home at the time.
The neighborhood is subject to the jurisdiction of Plainfield and Joliet. WGN is informed that Plainfield has given his blessing to keep the display.
The family is meeting with Joliet on Wednesday to make sure they aren’t doing anything they shouldn’t be doing. If Joliet gives the green light, the ad is expected to run through Halloween.
