This year was our 5th Annual 'Pirates of Carlsbad' Halloween display. It was a big hit with the 150 Trick-or-Treaters that made it all the way to the treasure chest full of candy! All a tribute to my favorite attraction at Disneyland.
The approach to our house.
First scene was the Pirate Graveyard.
Second scene was the Pirate Wharf.
If you don't stow your weapons like a good pirate, you end up in the Brig.
Third scene was the Pirate Lagoon.
The approach to the lagoon was dangerous.
After landing at the lagoon, quicksand was the next peril.
Killed of by a greedy pirate.
(Fourth scene was the Pirate Swamp. This was a dark trail with fog, fireflies and glowing animal eyes.)
Final scene was the Pirate Lair.
Trick-or-treaters headed to the Baaarrrh where the treasure chest of candy was stashed.
Backstage at the brig...
It is all stored away for next year and we already have drawings and ideas for plussing the display next year.
