Many people enjoy going to haunted houses during the Halloween season; but what about a haunted corn field?
In this week’s Flashback Friday KELOLAND’s Angela Kennecke shows us how one Iowa farmer used other people's junk to create a huge Halloween display:
Right across from an Iowa Corn Field, Ed found if he builds it, they will come. His Halloween display is a cross between a haunted house and a fun house.
"It's pretty neat," Ed said.
This grown man in a bunny suit lets his imagination run wild. Another man's junk is his spooky bird.
"I see something and I think, ‘hey, I can do something with that,’ so I just do," Ed said.
People come from miles around to see Ed's haunted yard to get a fright or a laugh. Ed puts out a display for every holiday but Halloween is by far the biggest. He begins working on his display on September 1 and turns the lights on the first week of October.
"It takes a long time for just one guy to do it," Ed said. "People are always giving me things."
Even though 50 to 60 people stop by nearly every night to look, Ed says he'd never dream about charging admission. That would take the fun out of it.
"The idea that people appreciate it I guess, when you do something well you like people to tell you about it and you appreciate it," Ed said.
Call him an artist or call him crazy, Ed doesn't care as long as he makes Halloween a little more spooktacular.
