If you were to ask Jack and Gracie what their favorite movies to watch to get into the Halloween Spirit… they would list off a bunch. Among the list they would share is Hocus Pocus. Twenty-five years ago, Disney released three witches called the Sanderson sisters. As Jack and Gracie celebrated their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, they chose to celebrate the movie Hocus Pocus as this year’s theme.
What most people did not know is that Disney released a book which included a sequel to the movie. Basing this year’s theme on Hocus Pocus II, Jack dressed up as Max Dennison and Gracie played the role of Winifred Sanderson. Visitors were treated to all kinds of tricks from Jack and Gracie while they played their roles well.
“This is one of my all time favorite movies! The movie consists of all there is about Halloween…” tells Gracie. “I have always wanted to create and host the Hocus Pocus theme. However, we tend to shy away from such notable movies due to the difficulty of bringing them to life with our meager funds.”
New this year – Loretta the witch, several more pumpkins, several more skeleton creatures, a new sign as well as other small items. Perhaps the favorite new item was the Sanderson Sisters tombstone, which was completely hand built by Gracie several days before the Annual Light-Up ceremony.
“It was a lot of fun doing the Hocus Pocus theme this year.” adds Jack. “So many people knew exactly who we were!”
