Trick or Treat

Tonight was the night and we gave it our all! The final yard display was looking pretty kick ass as you can see from the photo. Unfortunately I couldn’t do the fog this year like I wanted. It was insanely windy all day and I would have been an exercise in futility to try to get my yard to fill with fog. Oh well, maybe next year. My new fence turned out to be a great addition to the yard. it kept the kids from walking through the display and it gave the house a spooky finishing touch I’ve never had before. Now I think I’ll leave it up to spring and hope for it to rust a bit.

The bad news was we had less than half as many kids come this year. I’m not sure why, perhaps its the economy or just my street. Not many people seem to want to participate here. I’m seriously considering a newspaper ad next year and calling it “Nightmare on Broadway Street”. Too much? Maybe, but I’m tired of not getting enough people and being left with too much candy after.

This was the first year where I had people taking their pictures in front of my house! There were several people getting there picture taken standing in front of the fence with the Sam from Trick r’ Treat standing behind them in the yard. Pretty cool that people were digging it enough to take a photo!

Brian and Trisha from Beyond the Grave Productions were Awesome in getting me a Sam made just in time for Trick ‘r Treat! You can see a photo of him standing in the yard below. That’s a Beyond the Grave Michael Myers on the hill above. I have lots more photos on the way that I should finish Friday and a video I’m hoping to have done very soon as well. Stay Tuned and Happy Halloween!

So I’ve been diligently working on the little yard display I do each year for a couple weeks now. Its pretty close to being where I want it to be. It needs a bit more but its getting there. The Biggest addition this year is the faux wrought iron fence I bought from Lowes. This fence is pretty bad ass and makes the house look even creepier. I think I might leave it up till Next spring just to let it weather a bit. Overall things are shaping up for trick r’ treat night here in my town! This is the first photo from 2010 and I need some feedback so let me know what you guys think and give me some constructive criticism if you have it to give!
