Video - MWGIC EP-00077: Wickerd Farms Haunted Pumpkin Patch


Watch video - and please subscribe - on YouTube:


Show Notes:

Charles McKee and I paid an evening visit to Wickerd Farms' haunted pumpkin patch today, and I got in a brief interview with Jack Wickerd. This is a lot of fun for the little ones in a beautiful Southern California setting. Enjoy!

FYI...exclusive to the blog...the ending to the video was entirely accidental. I stumbled on a rock that was very round and almost rolled my ankle. My finger hit the stop button, and there you go. Perfect "Blair witch" ending to our little Halloween video.
