“…and the Storyteller paused…
and it was as if the wonders he retold had cast a spell upon him…”-A.E.

“The forest is dark and enchanted…branches creak and leaves rustle as trees close in, obscuring the path home.  Wander deep into the shadows and you’ll find frightful folklores, fantastical stories and chilling tales.  These bedtime stories will give you nightmares, and you’ll discover that not all fairy tales end happily-ever-after.” –Rogers Gardens

I have attended the first day opening of the Rogers Gardens Halloween Event for the past few years and I will be there early to enjoy it this year as it looks to be especially creepy.  The four rooms they usually design/decorate traverse beautiful to bizarre, worth the stop if you are near Corona del Mar, Ca.  See you there?

Rogers Gardens 2013

In a world where the retail side of Halloween seems to be ever shrinking – Rogers Gardens in Corona Del Mar, California maintains a definite annual presence.  The team takes the time and effort to construct theme and ambiance to offer its loyal customers a thoughtful and creatively spooky “Mecca-like” destination for a unique Halloween pilgrimage.  Here are some pics from this years offering – but check out the website for a more complete viewing of their display for 2013 and past years.
