All of the visitors I spoke with enjoyed themselves.  Everyone  liked the family-friendly nature of the event. 


Mayhem on Mansfield is one impressive yard display.  The entire front yard was transformed into a graveyard, with humorous epitaphs written on all of the headstones. But this event was more than just  a collection of headstones.  Several ghoulish characters inhabited the yard, including a rotting bride & groom, "Scream", Dracula and other spooky characters.  There was also a skeleton caught in a huge spider web, as well as a bubbling skull fountain. Their use of eerie lighting and spooky music, in addition to all the props, really put you in the Halloween mood.  

And the front yard was just the beginning.  The props extended up through the driveway, inside the garage and into the backyard.  Even their backyard deck was populated with spooky characters.

They had a nice display called the "Graveyard Of The Stars", which was a collection of Jack O' Lanterns sitting on hay bales. Each pumpkin was carefully carved, to resemble the face of a famous actor or actress.  Elvis Presley, John Wayne,  Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe were just some of the celebrities that were featured. 

One thing that made Mayhem on Mansfield stand out from the rest of the yard displays I have seen was their impressive light show. With flashing lights synchronized to Michael Jackson's "Thriller", it was really a lot fun to watch.    For the finale, a creepy zombie girl emerged from her casket, and joined three other "ghouls" dancing to the music.  After the performance was over, there was a round of applause from the crowd.

Special thanks to the Lindich family for their hospitality.  This is a great family oriented event.  It is easy to see that they have been doing this for years, as they have accumulated quite a collection of props.  Be sure to check it out; This yard display is really worth visiting!
