Our entire staff was challenged with decorating Holiday World for Happy Halloween Weekends.

And lots of crews from all sorts of departments stepped up and created some cute, clever, hilarious and even creepy displays.

This one made me laugh enough that I took a picture (truth be told, I was sort of out of breath from hoofing all over the grounds, so the 10 seconds of rest was nice).

So now it's time for you to make me laugh, or to keep with the theme – tickle my funny bone!

So here's a quick Caption Contest – the winner will receive two one-day tickets to this year's Happy Halloween Weekends.

A few rules:

1. Must be 13 or older to enter.

2. Must not be an employee or immediate family member of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari.

3. Yes, you may enter more than once. Because you're just that witty, right? But five times per person is the limit. Really. And only one caption per posted Comment, please.

4. Deadline is this Friday at noon. That's 10/12/12 at 12 noon CDT. We'll notify the winner by email on Friday.

How to enter? Post your hilarious caption to the above photo as a  Comment here on this HoliBlog post (we moderate our Comments, so don't go booo-listic when it doesn't show up right away, okay? As long as you don't go all naughty on us, we'll post your caption).

Good luck! And we hope you can join us, weekends in October, for Happy Halloween Weekends!

    Since Holiday World is already one of the cleanest parks in the nation, they were able to cut back on their cleaning crew this season.
