Annual Syracuse Halloween Display Coming Back Bigger Than Ever…With Your Help
It's coming back! The Halloween display that hundreds come from miles around to see every year returns in Syracuse. But the couple behind it need a little help.
Stan Munro and Suzi Campanaro’s lawn in Syracuse has been the place to be for Halloween for the last decade. But last year's display had to be scaled back to the bare bones after a health scare left the couple asking for prayers instead of tricks and treats.
Suzi had to be taken to the hospital after her kidney transplant failed last Summer. "My talented husband had anticipated one of our most elaborate ideas ever for 2018," says Suzi.
This Summer, Suzi received her second kidney transplant and she's doing great. That means the elaborate display meant for last year will go up this year. But Stan says they need a little help. "We got tons of support and donations from the community when Suzi was sick and stopped working, but we can’t take any of the money for our silly Halloween display. It's all going to medical bills."
To help with the costs of putting up such a huge display, Stan and Suzi are hoping to find a sponsor this year. "We would put their logo in front of what will be bigger than anything we've done before, and we start in 2 weeks."
The plan is to build Dracula’s Castle that will be at least 18-ft tall. "We want to have a space where people can take pictures in front of it and sign the castle gates. We need a thousand-dollar sponsor who wants to have fun."
Any business interested in getting in front hundreds of people who come in droves to Sandra Drive in North Syracuse to see the elaborate Halloween display each year, can contact Stan at Toothpick World on Facebook.
