Are you looking for spotlights to light the sky or a prop? Color, UV, or white, LED or incandescent? Give us some idea on what you'd like to do with the spot and I'm sure people here can help you decide. Usually with a haunt you don't want bright, so I'm guessing you want to do something very specific with the spot to attract attention?

if time allows, they ship from china, usually takes about 2 weeks for delivery. www.taydaelectronics.com

EDIT: by far the cheapest I have found and they also have 15% off coupons on there facebook page fairly often
hmmm ok yes it can be beat lol.

i like very cheap. i used these https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/component-leds/5mm-cool-white-high-flux-led-90-degree-viewing-angle-5500-mcd/353/1300/ i guess they went up a little in price. they are now $0.59 each

but i like that they are in the U.S., shipping is fast, the ones i ordered have a wide viewing angle 90° vs 30°. but it all depends on what you are using the lights for. the smaller angle gives more intense light on a smaller area. also the high flux ones are about twice as bright(5500 MCD vs 2000-3000 MCD). but for the price i could make more... decisions decisions

usually around 10-14 days. I have had it take 17 days. so you should get it before the day but may not be enough time for you to do what you want with the parts ;)

I looked at the Plug and Play LED spot lighting, and loved it! I will be making several larger ones, with several LEDs inside each. last year I bought 600 UV (blacklight) LEDs, and will be using them to light the Blacklight highlights on our haunt.

Off to Lowes...

nice i made two of the larger ones also, i am connecting them to the build your own lightning machine http://www.halloweenforum.com/halloween-props/127831-build-you-own-lightning-machine.html.

i uised six high flux leds in each and both lights combined are way below the 200 watt limit of the board. good luck and drop me a line if you have any questions
