Thanks to the hundreds and hundreds who took a moment to enter our contests these past few weeks.

Pumpkins for Happy Halloween WeekendsOur "Counting Pumpkins" contest called for, admittedly, sheer guessery.

How many pumpkins were we planning to bring in for Happy Halloween Weekends?

The correct number is rather a staggering one: 10, 875.

All locally grown, by the way. Many are to be given away to children 12 and younger as part of the pumpkin decorating activity in Goblin Grove.

Congrats to Shari from Bloomington, Indiana. She wins two one-day tickets to Happy Halloween Weekends for guessing mighty close to the exact number.

This week we posted a silly photo from our park's Halloween theming and asked for clever captions.

We received many, many witty entries – our funny bones have been well tickled, and we have chosen five winners (in no particular order):

Happy Halloween Weekends at Holiday WorldDameon (how's that for a great Halloween name?!) from Marengo, Indiana:

Pumpkin:  "Hey!  You wanna ride some wild coasters with me?!"
Skeleton:  "I'd love to, but you've got more guts than me!"

Connie from Hartford, Kentucky:

If Holidog sees me I won't have a leg to stand on!

Carolyn from Avon, Indiana:

I sweep the trash!  (to the tune of Monster Mash)
I sweep the goblin's trash!
The goblin's trash!
It's a ghoulish task!
I sweep the trash!
It's like a pumpkin smash!
I sweep the trash,
I sweep the goblin's trash!  Wahoo!


With most of our summer help back at college, we're down to our skeleton crew!

And Wynette from Mooresville, Indiana:

The graveyard shift is the best.  No Bones about it!

Again, congrats to the winners, who each receive two one-day tickets to Happy Halloween Weekends.
