Hi guys!

I'd love to hear folks observations about the difference between midweek haunting and weekend haunting?

I feel like our hobby swells every few years when H falls on thur-sun. When we start getting consecutive years of weekday haunting it seems like the swell fades a bit leaving the hobby to the more hardcore haunters.

I often wonder if H suppliers and retailers like Wmart scale back their retail efforts when H is midweek.

I'm off the email lists at the moment, but I wonder if the L, Howl and CC are slower than a couple of years ago.

Does anyone have hard numbers of ToT's on weekends vs. weekdays? We've grown each year so I don't have a good idea what kind of growth to expect in a few years.

=)

My wife and I went to Nobbies, equivalant to Party City, here in Omaha last Sunday....and it was absoluely PACKED. There was a buzz in the store...lots of anticipation. Not sure how the TOT will be this year....kind of depends on the weather...but we expect some very good numbers this year.

I agree with weather being a BIG factor, regardless of day-of-week. We had our biggest crowd ever last year (Monday) and it was a picture perfect night. I think that numbers could possibly even be less on a Saturday, given parties, etc. Weekdays, most parents don't have a lot planned in the evening. I dunno. If our weather forecast holds, I'm getting candy for 700 this year, and this is just based on last year's count and how many we had to turn away.

woohoo the guy that got me started on the road to home haunting didn't move away! I never really met the people, but his yard haunt a few years ago was my springboard. the last few years he has not had his stuff out for halloween, so I assumed he must have moved away. I drove by his house tonight and the stuff was up! YAAAAAY! I gotta get pictures. :D
