The day started early for us at 4:30am when we got up to turn on the display for Joe V's arrival from Good Day Oregon FOX12. We were on the air from 5:50 to 8:50am. There is always a lot of waiting around for the few minute live broadcasts. We asked people to stop by in costume for the shot and several were able to come over. We had fun as always even though it was raining and cold most of the time.
We left everything setup for the evening. At 5pm we closed the streets and the police cadets showed up to block both ends. People started showing up and the dance team arrived to get ready. They setup a tent across the street to sell cocoa and cider. The dance team started performing at about 6:30 and did their routine as often as they could untile 9pm when they had to leave. We had 1000's of people stop by to trick-or-treat and see the display. We were able to shut the display off at about 11:30pm we put things away and went to bed to rest up for the next day's take down.
