Let's take a peek at some of Knott's Berry Farm's Halloween decorations. These pics were all taken during the day since I haven't yet decided if I'm going to go to one of their Halloween Haunt nights. I'm considering it, but I just don't know if I want to deal with the crowds. I worked many of the Haunts back in the eighties, but the last time that I actually paid to go to a Haunt was in 1982. I remember Elvira singing a parody of Toni Basil's "Mickey" that night and a cover band in Fiesta Village singing Human League's "Don't You Want Me Baby?" Ah, but I digress.....here we go with the photos.
Thar be skeletons in Ghost Town......lots of 'em! Here are a few that can be found on the balcony of the Gold Trails Hotel.
These next two can be found near the entrance to the Wagon Camp.
This vignette is located along the pathway that leads to Silver Bullet.
The Calico Train Depot has it's own pair of skeletons.
This one climbed up onto the roof of Judge Roy Bean's. Maybe it's supposed to be Lily Langtry?
The stage in Calico Square is decorated as well. You can see a gallows on the far right of the stage. I wonder if they still do the traditional "Hanging of the Witch" show?
Looks like they might also use the stage for some musical numbers.....I smell a Lady Gaga parody of some sort. I just wish it was Elvira that was coming out of that egg.....then I would definitely buy a ticket!
