Legend Nights

Philipsburg Manor in a torrential downpour this past Saturday was a slop fest. Mud, mud and a heavy helping of more mud made getting around and enjoying the haunt rather difficult.
It was raining so hard at times you could not hear the actors, mostly stationed in barns or some type of enclosure. 2 witches who braved the elements, tried really hard to work the crowd amidst a terrible soaking. Drenchy Hollow!
Awesome Tim Burton inspired scarecrows through out. Really tall, 10 -12 feet high - burning real candles within. Definitely see incorporating more height to my own next year. Mine leans forward a little and comes in at about 7ft. By the way ...the little twerp was found later that night face planted from being monsooned upon. The burlap gets really heavy when wet.

The Horseman was great. Atop a giant black horse he came across as both monstrous and intimidating.
