Scooby Doo

Another childhood series that inspired my love for Halloween.

One of the most disappointing things as a home haunter is not being able to get out to visit other home haunts as Halloween approaches.
I've always been intrigued by other home haunts and try to make it a point to visit as many as I can before Halloween night and meet up with the creators , but most home haunts are only open on Halloween night.
This makes it impossible for most home haunters to visit each others displays because were too busy working on our own events, so we have to resort to seeing photos and videos on the Internet of each others creative displays.

Paul & Kim from The Boneyard Bargains have found a way to recreate this excitement during the warm summer months. Every June for the past five years they have hosted an event called SCAREFEST that brings all home haunters together.

Scarefest allows you to:

  • Meet other home haunters (Ontario Haunter's Club).
  • Learn new ideas & trade secrets from the haunt industry.
  • Purchase Halloween props or swap.
  • Participate in a contest for best homemade prop-static and best homemade prop animated.
  • Walk through haunt with props for sale.
  • Purchase raffle tickets for amazing Halloween prizes.
  • Enjoy a great BBQ and refreshments
  • See attached photos.

I was so happy to be around people who are as obsessed about Halloween & home haunting as I am.

Thanks again to Paul & Kim for "The Perfect Summer Day".
