  2. Static: NBC yard

    Halloween Props

    2016 Haunted Harvest Meets The Walking Dead - We took a new twist on two themes and converted the front porch into an old farmhouse.

    Halloween Props
    If you were only setting up something on your porch, what would your go-to scare be?

    We use our front porch as part of our haunted trail that goes through our yard. This year we put our Pennywise figure on the porch, along with about 100 balloons and the It music playing. We also had a fog machine to make it more creepy. About an hour into trick or treating, a guy comes to the...
