Wow, I just poked around on that site- first prize is $5,000? That's awesome- I hope you grab it, buddy! Even 5th place- $1,000? How does a city find the budget for $15,000 in prizes?

Yes... This has to be the biggest Halloween contest in Canada. The contest has been running for 4 years. The winners are determined by votes/ likes on there web site. http://www.hauntyourhome.ca/entry/41 Last year I placed 6th with my Halloween Rock Band.. It seems like its a who you know contest... Not how great your display is. I'm having a hard time with the promoting side of my display. Any ideas or help with the promoting would be great from you guys. I'm no computer whizz..

Thanks for all the compliments everyone.... I'm expecting my Fogstorm 1700 HD to arrive today. It's going to get foggie this weekend.

I hope you post some pics or video with the fog blowing.

I love fogging the neighborhood out with the fog machines. :D

I have two 1500 vertical fog machines and 3 1300 fog machines that are going to blow a lot of fog out hopefully very soon. I may have the firetrucks at my house wondering WHERE's the FIRE? :rolleyes:

Really awesome idea! What's your UFO hanging from? I thought you were using the antenna in back, but one pic shows cables going to something much higher.

Maybe you can tweet the artists that sing the songs of the songs you used?

Then maybe they will retweet. :)

Thanks for the info... I have put the video link on several FB pages including the artist. I hope this brings traffic to my video.

After several failed attempts using high strength rope, I decided I would use aircraft cable. I attached the cable to trees on each side of my property and used a come along to tighten down the cable. I have used several pully's to help with the lifting of the UFO.

That was awesome! I love the hovering UFO!

Thanks.... I will post the new Yanni- Standing motion video ASAP... The weather has been crap for the past 2 weeks so the Firework video will have to wait. We are very limited to Fireworks in Canada, so there are only a few (consumer) comets that will work for the musical show. I'm not so sure it will be worth the video..
