Halfway to Halloween 2023!

After producing and editing 13 separate videos, I am finally finished documenting Diagon Alley! It took me this long to tell the full story of our Wizarding World Halloween and Christmas in Diagon Alley , and here we are already halfway to Halloween 2023! All the Diagon Alley videos are on our Halloween 2022 video playlist , which is linked from both event pages, and on our Eerie Elegance YouTube channel . Please like & subscribe! Now it's full speed ahead for our big Nightmare Before Christmas 30th anniversary celebration for Halloween 2023! At least I am already almost done with our costumes: Jauntie Oogie Boogie in burlap suit sporting crawling bugs and snake tongue cravat beside yours truly as Spiral Hill in crushed velvet covered in carved jack o'lanterns, complete with Jack & Sally in front of a glowing moon and Halloween countdown clock pocketwatch! There are still more details to add before these costumes meet my full vision for Halloween, plus improvements

Diagon Alley is DONE!

After 7 more nights of Christmas in Diagon Alley ending on New Year's Day 2023, our Diagon Alley is done! We had a fantastic final night in good weather with 275 guests enjoying our magic, never waiting more than an hour in line, even closing on time with our snow lasting almost the whole evening...and by 6:30pm we had crossed the $15K mark raised for Give Kids the World Village to spread the magic to critically-ill children and their families! That’s another THOUSAND just in the past 2 days! Our grand totals for our Wizarding World Halloween and Christmas in Diagon Alley together are 5410 guests visiting over 19 nights, recycling & sanitizing the same 1000 wands with 418 left, and $15,464 raised for Give Kids the World Village®! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your Halloween AND Christmas cheer with them and with us! We can all start the new year proud of the good we have done while having fun!
