No effects tonight
It has started to rain and it looks like it is going to pour later. To keep our props safe and better able to return to work next weekend, we are not running the effects tonight. Sorry about that everyone!

The effects are on tonight!
Was a dry day and we were able to get the effects out in the yard! The display is running tonight.
Be sure to visit us tomorrow from 11am - 4pm for our Open House - get a chance to see behind the scenes and watch the Milwaukie High School Dance Team perform "Thriller" - this event is also a fundraiser for the dance team.

Rain Forcast all weekend!
Looks like heavy rain on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The effects will be limited to sound and fog along with a few animated pieces like the coffin. We probably won't bring out the projectors if it is pouring rain or the coach driver. Lights will be on as usual though and if you come out and brave the weather the display will still be great to view.
Open House this Sunday
Join us on Sunday, 11am to 4pm for our annual open house. This is the only time we let the public on the property to view the props up close...well, closer.
The crew who built the yard will be there to answer questions and show you around.
This is also a fundraiser for the Milwaukie High School Dance Team, who are back this year and will be dancing "Thriller" in the graveyard. All donations on this day will go directly to the dance team.
We will hold even rain or shine. Hope to see you there!
