UT man creates 2,000 lb. Halloween display in his front yard

SALT LAKE CITY (NBC) - A Salt Lake City man has built a Halloween display that might just put yours to shame.

Michael Green has built a two thousand pound spider in his front yard.

Green decided his creation had to do more than just sit and watch. It also breaths fire.

He says it took two years to create, taking up enough time and space to make any wife at least a little concerned.

"My wife was not really excited about it because she ended up giving up her side of the garage in the winter while I was working on it," said Green.

Despite that, Green says what it does for the family and neighborhood kids, makes it all worthwhile.

He says he plans to leave the spider on display through Thanksgiving.
