If you asked me what Halloween was all about, I’d say “community.” It is a time when neighborhoods and towns come together for costumes and celebration. It is about kids and candy and running around like crazy.
Nobody seems to understand this better than the home haunter. He/she falls under the enchantment of October and the feeling is so powerful that they want to play a part. Often without any money to spend, they cobble together displays and maze constructs comprised of scrap plywood, old boards and black plastic sheets. Walls are adorned with rattle-can flat black spraypaint and sealed with Great Stuff foam. Toss in some Walmart display items, some makeup, wigs and scare masks, and maybe an old washing machine. Bring in the neighborhood kids to be the monsters and you’ve got yourself a show. It is a show worth seeing.
That description fits Brad’s Boo Barn to a T.
I walked in to the haunt, a child in a freak mask reached up and took my hand to lead me through the maze. As we walked along, other kids jumped out of dark corners at me, shouting and giggling and even saying, “Boo.” It didn’t take long to figure out that the kids were having more fun than I was, and I was having the time of my life.
