Well, I guess it is time for that other holiday. The one with sugar n spice n KRAMPUS!
Be sure to check out KRAMPUSNACHT BREMERTON 2022 on December 2nd. You can get photos with a bunch of Krampsuses, since they will NOT be attending Leavenworth this year. And if you want pictures with “the Mean One” head over to Enumclaw for Small business weekend November 26th 11-5pm.
I’ve taken to decorating my homestead with a 12’ skelly and Mari Lwyd. Mari Lwyd is a tradition in which a horse skull is draped in bells, ruins and colored ribbons. Each year the Mari Lwyd would be taken from house to house asking for entry via song. Once inside, Mari Lwyd would eat food and drink ale, so beware if I show up on your doorstep!
Have a safe merry Winter season

It had been a few years since I attempted a LHT and this one was a great way to restart my post Halloween tradition. My Bestie was busy with family so I ventured out on my own to Nashville TN.
Arriving a few day before the tours I was able to explore downtown Nashville, caught some live music while nomming on BBQ, visited the Gaylord Opryland Resort and learned about Nearest Green & whiskey distillation on a distillery tour.
One of the best times of LHT is the bus ride where you can connect with Haunters from all over the US. I was able to meet the master mind behind Haunters Against Hate, the reps from TicketSpice; reconnect with Scott & a crew from Georgetown Morgue, Ray from Glowing Greens, and Tater from everywhere who mixes a mean margarita!
Boarding the bus on Friday night we headed out to Maury County to experience Miller’s Thrillers where we were treated to a live band in the entertainment zone with a stage show with pyrotechnics while dining on BBQ. (Yummy!) After the show I choose HILLBILLY HOLLAR in the haunted woods. This outdoor trail was where all manners of red necks, hicks and backwoods spirits came from the collapse of mine #7 where they met their demise. The trail was well themed, scare actors where high energy and one of the longest trails I’ve traversed. The trail was full of mysterious entities and has you weaving its way through decrypted buildings up/down several stairs ways and down a questionable slide.
Next up was Zombie Hayride Reloaded where you board a flatbed trailer and attempt to take out the quarantined horde of infected zombies under a spirited moon. What fun that was.
Back on the bus we ventured back Nashville to see Devil’s Dungeon Haunted House. This indoor haunt was chock full of animatronics and scare actors. It had one of the best ‘maze’ sequences I’ve ever been lost in and the 3D rooms had incredible act work. After surviving the haunt we gathered in the actors/makeup area to chat it up with staff & attendees.
Saturday night we headed out to Slaughterhouse in Hermitage. Slaughterhouse starts out with a Marie Laveau-ish lady ushering you into the realm of magic & mayhem. Within I found ghouls galore, Michael Myers, and plenty of eye candy. A few of the ramps could have used hand rails IMO; but the laser fog room was spot on with a talented scare actor working the room.
Back on the bus we headed to Madison where we converged in Class Axe Throwing and were treated to Tennessee Hot chicken, greens, mac n cheese and plenty of Moonshine shots. Tater was also mixing a mean margarita for any who dared. After some smoozing we walked over to Nashville Nightmare’s grounds. This large scale event hosts Midnight Mortuary, Horror High where an old condemned high school Halloween party goes wrong, Cursed Legends of the Deep shows what’s been summoned by pirates within, Vector Research’s Dr. Hades mixing it up with aliens & zombies and Outcast Carnival filled with rabid clowns. There was plenty to look at outside of the haunts and several unique character wandering around.
All in all it was a most excellent trip and I highly suggest all to attend next year!
