  4. Tiki Themed Halloween 2018

    General Halloween
    Here are the videos of my Tiki Themed Haunt. There were supposed to be animations (a creep jumping out of the Tiki Bar and a moving Tiki skeleton) but I did not have time to get those working, had computer glitches and the tiki poles being the main attraction took priority. Also fog was...

  9. A most unhappy Birthday

    General Halloween
    Well my birthday was this weekend and on Sunday I stopped at the barn and as the owner was home from his 6 day week I stopped at the house. That's when the bomb dropped!

    Night started with rain. That didn't slow attendance. We just crowded into the garage. As it went on, the rain stopped and it warmed just in time to start lighting things. I knew early on, this year was special as it started to fill in.

    I have always loved Halloween! We have been up to Salem, MA several times in the past for their Halloween celebrations but stopped going once it became so commercialized - and I hate to say it - trashy. Does anyone else here feel the same? :o
