Seems like we have a little interest in Halloween 2014. Quite a few guests have been checking in throughout the year. The supersized Heggs display has retired, but I will be decorating and many of your favorites will be back - the Phantom, Grandpa and his dragula-mobile, the Laughing Boys and the Bony Boys Band. And whatever else I have the strength to dig up - so to speak.
If you do happen to stop by, you will see many of my former display figures adorning our neighbor's yards. After last year, I gave away nearly a dozen of my Heggs House of Horror creations for their Halloween displays. Go trick or treating in the neighborhood and you'll likely
see old favorites still haunting for another All Hallows Eve.
For nearly 20 years Halloween's been my favorite time of year. Who would have thought when I put up that first home made papier-mache witch on my front porch in the early 90's with my young daughter, that one day my "little display" would become a Halloween tradition for families all over Northeast Ohio!
We've had thousands of visitors over the years and I want to thank you all for taking the time to visit, to donate (every penny went back into the display), and I especially want to thank you all for the wonderful memories I'll carry with me till the day I'm ready to be put in a Halloween display myself!
And the memories I cherish most - the good times, people enjoying themselves, the laughter, and the look of awe and wonder (and sometimes a little terror!) on the children's faces as they wander through the land of Heggs.
I've made many new friends and love talking to each of you every year. Most surprising to me are the people who've told me how they or someone they knew, was either sick or going through some tough times personally and how after visiting my display, their spirits were lifted with the fun and laughter that is all part of the "Heggs House of Horror". If my Halloween party has brought a smile to your lips and you were in need of one, that's payback enough for all my efforts.
So, thank you all for being a part of my yearly festivities at the Heggs House of Horror for the last two decades.
AND AS THE FAB FOUR ONCE SANG, "WE HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED THE SHOW...YOU WERE SUCH A WONDERFUL AUDIENCE, AND IT CERTAINLY WAS A THRILL."
