U.S. presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton go at it on the front lawn of Paul and Jeff Hafting’s house in Annapolis Royal.

A Nova Scotia family has taken the U.S. election campaign to a whole new level with their ‘"Trumpkin People."

Paula and Jeff Hafting, along with their three kids, have created a presidential debate in their Annapolis Royal front yard. At night, the scene is lit with floodlights.  

The speed limit is 50 km per hour along the roadway in front of their house, but the couple said passersby are slowing down for a better look. 

It’s not clear if the rubberneckers drive away screaming or laughing.

Pumpkin Donald Trump and pumpkin Hillary Clinton are standing tall in front of their house, complete with podiums and familiar facial expressions.

"The Donald" has his mouth open and hand raised. Clinton stands by with a slightly bemused smile.

Also noteworthy is the wall Mr. Trumpkin has apparently built around himself.

The Haftings said Trump is saying "Let’s make Halloween great again." 

Two signs in Star Wars style prep onlookers with the words "Meanwhile Far Far Away’" and "From Annapolis Royal."

“The beautiful historic town of Annapolis Royal may be far far away from the presidential campaign trail, but the debate between Trumpkin and Hillary is definitely a hot event outside the Hafting family home on Saint George Street,” the Haftings said.

The third and final presidential debate is Wednesday night.
