  8. Haunt in a large party tent?

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone, here's what I have in mind. My garage is too small for a "garage haunt", and besides, it also serves as my workshop (never parked a car in there ever since we moved into the place). I do have a huge driveway, though (over 5 meter wide, 20 meter long), big enough for an 8x4 meter...

  11. Electronic/Software: Budget Motion detector with timer? Audio?

    Halloween Props
    For those with tall outdoor pumpkin scarecrows, sentinels, etc ... is there a consensus best ways to illuminate them?

  15. Is 2018 a down year (for outdoor stuff)?

    General Halloween
    I live in MN where school doesn't start until after Labor Day. That means stores just put out Halloween stuff last week. I feel like the amount of Halloween decorations (specifically for outdoors) has been on the decline the last couple years. My city doesn't not have a Spirit Halloween this...
