Ghost Day, October 28th

Halloween Time Zone again...

Ghost Day

It's a day to tell ghost stories, or to sneak into the haunted houses in your neighborhood, or to put on a white sheet and pretend to all your friends that you are transparent.

Or if you are in Utah, near Springville, you can visit this drive-by haunted house:

Widtfeldt has created a Halloween display at his Springville home, taking the concept of synchronizing automated displays with music and creating what he calls a "drive-by haunted house."

Based on the original script of the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland, Widtfeldt has re-created the experience in his front yard. Drivers can park their cars in front of his home and tune the radio to 106.7 FM, then listen as a 10-minute narrative unfolds, while automated displays involving lights and moving parts bring the story to life.

"We've all been on the Haunted Mansion ride when we were kids, so this is kind of cool and nostalgic," Widtfeldt said. "It's kind of a different take, but if you think about it, the Haunted Mansion ride itself is basically a drive-by haunted house." The free drive-by haunted house is at 498 E. 1050 North in Springville. It runs Monday-Saturday on a 10-minute loop, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30. (Stop by for spooky spectacle, Jeremy Twitchell, Deseret Morning News)

I went last night. It was interesting. Kinda cool, kinda I don't know what to say about it. If you have the chance you should go, it only takes about ten minutes. It's worth it, especially if you have good company.

Or you could sit at home all day and make ghost sugar cookies. You might win more friends and influence people that way, but only if you share. :)
