We get pretty excited about Halloween at Ripley’s! Here are some of our favorite halloween finds from this year! If you find something send it in here, we may just add it to this blog!
Halloween Light Show
This year Creative Lighting Displays animated lights on their house to the song “Jump Around (House of Pain)” and it’s awesome!
Josh Sundquist Foosball Costume
Josh Sundquist is already known for having super inventive costume ideas. This year he became a member of the U.S. National Amputee Soccer Team and he raised the bar when it came to his funny costumes: He went as a foosball player! He explains it all in his latest blog post.
$149.9 Million in Pumpkins
149.9 million dollars worth of pumpkins harvested in the US just last year! That’s enough to cover 50,900 acres of land!
Finally! Petco is offering up a Taco Dog costume this year.
42.1 Million Trick-or-Treaters
The US Census Bureau estimated there were more than 42 million trick-or-treaters last year. And that’s just counting kids 5 to 14 years old!
Fan Submission! by Melissa Halter!
She explains: Every year in North Texas we have a pug rescue charity event called Pug O Ween that helps us raise funds for abandoned, abused or homeless pugs. The costumes can get pretty elaborate at this event. This year, we decided to create a Freak show theme, featuring our own rescued pug, Velvet, as ‘The Bearded Lady’.
It’s estimated that 2.2 billion dollars are going to spent this Halloween just on candy this year!
Underwater Pumpkin Carving
Some of our divers at the Ripley’s Aquarium in Gatlinburg, TN carved pumpkins in our Shark Lagoon!
