Marco Polo takes a walk in the woods. What could go wrong?

Not your everyday zombies…

Every year around this time, Marco has the dreaded “zombie dream”, specifically, zombie emperors from ancient Rome. Yeah, totally weird. Hopefully it’s not some kind of doomsday premonition. Sweet dreams!

GO THERE! Halloween in Jersey?

Sure, there’s probably a “zombie walk” happening in a city near you, but the turnout in New Jersey for last year’s zombie walk in Asbury Park earned them a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. So, if you want to spend Halloween with the most dedicated of zombies, you might finally have a reason to visit New Jersey.

GO THERE! A Truly Haunted Mansion!

We mentioned this place a while back, and if you haven’t been there yet, Halloween is your golden opportunity!!!

The Winchester Mystery House is the former home of widow Sarah Winchester, who in 1881, upon the death of her husband, inherited %50 of the Winchester Repeating Arms company. Mrs. Winchester believed her family was cursed and that her Northern California mansion was haunted by all the victims who died at the muzzle of a Winchester rifle. So she began adding rooms to the property in order to accommodate all of them. By the time she died in 1922 the house had 160 rooms, 2,000 doors, 10,000 windows, 47 stairways, 47 fireplaces, 13 bathrooms, and 6 kitchens, along with plenty of secret passageways, trap doors, and stairways leading to nowhere. Plenty of ghost stories up in this crib.

Are you for real?

Ray Villafane is not your mamma’s pumpkin carver (who is most likely you.) This sculptor used two giant 1600+ lbs pumpkins to make this zombie themed carving, the largest in the world.

GO THERE! (without the little ones)

If you are the kind of person who actually enjoys being frightened out of your wits, there’s no better place to be on Halloween than the Headless Horseman Hayrides & Haunted Houses attraction in Ulster Park, New York. Be prepared for an intense night of thrills as you explore 6 themed haunted houses, a corn maze and a haunted hayride, where the Headless Horseman himself may leave you screaming like a little Marco.

Deadword of the Day: Ensorcelled

Ensorcelled: Enchanted, bewitched, fascinated.

As in: Marco is ensorcelled by the ambiance of Halloween. Also generally terrified.

GO THERE! And tell us how they stack up…

The city of Anoka, Minnesota, has been celebrating Halloween festival style since 1920. Now they claim, with good reason, to be the “Halloween capital of the world”. And they have the mural to prove it…
