I had the privilege this year to participate in the Home Haunters Association "Best Home Haunt of the Year Contest for 2010".

There were 64 participants from all over United States, Canada and even Germany. Everyone had to submit a video and pictures of their 2010 haunt, which was judged by a panel of 10 judges from the haunt industry.

Once all the video's were submitted, I was like a little kid coming home from Trick 'R' Treating on Halloween night. I just couldn't wait to sit down and open my bag to see what I got, or in this case, what everyone else's video's and pictures looked like.

It was great to see so many other amazing home haunts, one of the biggest disappointments for most home haunter's is not being able to check out other home haunts. We always seem to be working on our own haunts right up to the last minute on Halloween night, which doesn't allow us time to visit our friends haunts or one's we've seen on YouTube or the Internet.

Unfortunately I wasn't one of the nominee's, but I was honoured just to be in this contest with so many other amazing home haunts.

First Place Winners -
Darkwing Manor

Second Place Winners - McKamey Manor Asylum

Third Place Winners - Steve's Yard Haunt

Congratulations to all the winners.

I completely agree. It is wonderful to see all these haunts that you cannot see because you are working on your own.....and you have no idea how hard it is not to make the 6 hour drive down to see Darkwing close and yet so far!!!

We love Darkwing Manor and are thrilled that they are the winners!!!

Congrats to everyone who paricipated. Your labor of love is appreciated in more ways than you know.
