It's Halloween Time!

We're starting to get ready for this year's Halloween Yard Haunt. This year's theme is going to be "Creepy Carnival". For this year's prop build we're going to make a spooky ticket booth prop based on this design: Scary Ticket Booth Build. The thing I like about this prop concept is that it can be transformed into a spooky dungeon/crypt piece with a roof change and a new coat of paint for another Halloween. One of the challenges for this theme is to come up with a jack-o'-lantern style that screams "scary clown" but still glows like a traditional jack-o'-lantern. It's not a Haunted Eve yard haunt without the jack-o'-lanterns! We've got some ideas, just going to have to do a few trial runs to see if they work or not.

Another Successful Halloween

After the miserable bitter cold and strong winds we experienced during setup on Friday (went down to 28 degrees overnight), Halloween night was about as perfect as one could ask for. It was dry, calm, and temperatures hovered around 50 degrees during trick-or-treat. We actually got to use our fog machine this Halloween! We had 87 trick-or-treaters total and just about as many rave reviews and complements. There are tons of haunt photos to sort through so here are a few to tide you over until we can get them all up on the web site (hopefully by the end of the week).

Our Jack-O'-Lanterns Smell

This Halloween we're going with Vanilla Bourbon and Candy Corn scented votive candles in our jack-o'-lanterns.
