Walking in a Halloween Wonderland

Each year for Happy Halloween Weekends, our seasonal Team Members transform the park to give it a festive Halloween Feeling. So our Communications team set out while the park was still being decorated. Since we’re still in Santa Claus, Indiana, it just makes sense to call it a walk in a “Halloween Wonderland.” I’m sorry.

First we ran into Allison and Amanda from Entertainment and Events. They were hard at work spray-painting hay bales:

If you haven’t seen these (as well as our Kitty Claws hay bales painted by my talented sister Lauren), you’re missing out.

…and if I forced Josh and Sabrina to take pictures I had to take one too…

Sabrina and I even stopped by the 4th of July wall (painted just this year by the way) for a quick photo shoot.  If you haven’t been there yet, it’s a great background for some excellent selfies.

And just to tie the title of this blog post back in from that tangent, I’ve re-written some lyrics from Walking in a Winter Wonderland: 

People scream, are you listening?

In the maze, voices whispering

A most frightful sight, 

It’s spooky tonight,

Walking in a Halloween Wonderland


Enjoy getting that tune unstuck from your head. I’ll be singing it for the next week…
