If you want to see some good, old fashioned ingenuity combined with state-of-the-art technology, head on over to the Darboy Halloween House, at N9370 Exploration Avenue in Appleton.
You’ll find creepy regulars like Pennywise and Leatherface, along with a some clever Mario Kart characters and a running Kart.
Fifteen-year old Justin 3D printed amazing masks for Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser and the family’s costumes have been winning awards all over the area.
So many clever animatronics populate the yard that you have to take your time and listen carefully to all of them to fully appreciate the wit and mayhem.
The family has been hosting their Halloween display for two decades and it has grown more sophisticated every year.
In addition to hosting their display, the Darby Halloween House also collects non perishable food items for the St. Joe’s food pantry.
We enjoyed our visit and highly recommend a stop there before Halloween season wraps up.
It has been such a joy to visit these houses and appreciate all the time, effort and innovation people are putting into their displays.
Thank you to all of them and Happy Halloween week!
