Hello All,

Welcome to Our Halloween Page for 2018. I'd never built a guillotine before, so that's what I did this year. Green Monster gets the honors of pulling the handle. I did some animation projections this year also: the guillotine pumpkin, and three pumpkins in front of the garage. I bought the animations from atmosfx.com. Those folks are great. I also thought we'd lighten the mood with some jokes. So, Pumpkin Man (Voiced by Skippy) sets up some jokes, and the talking Skull (Voiced by Reid) delivers the punch line. We brought back the graveyard with tilting and rocking tombstones as well as some Creepy Dolls/Toys popping up from behind a couple of tombstones. I gave the Three Rising Light-up Pumpkins and the Creature in the Coffin the year off. The Spider still travels his web from top to bottom, black lights add ambiance, Halloween lights and carved pumpkins add to the festivities. JM donated some great creepy clown masks to adorn the skeletons in the rocking chairs and in the graveyard.      

It takes lots of string lights, lots of  pneumatics, lots of cylinders, lots of relays, lots of extension cords, and lots and lots of time to create the show. The show is run by a  Light-O-Rama 24-channel control system. Check out the pictures and videos below.

There are YouTube links to different portions of the display and show below.
