For almost two decades now we, Andy Reid & Jamie Beauchamp-Reid, have been producing Halloween displays in the front yard of our home (2943 S Clement Avenue) in Milwaukee’s popular south side neighborhood, Bay View. The displays change yearly with new themes and attractions. As the popularity from the neighborhood grew, so did the displays. Every year the displays draw larger and larger crowds not only for the changes that are made yearly but from the news coverage that comes with it. Multiple local news stations report on our display each year including WISN 12, TMJ4, CBS58 and a handful of local newspapers. Beyond that, numerous websites post about our displays each year and we have even made it as far as Good Morning America and the Kelly & Ryan Show!
All said and done, we LOVE producing these displays and are always extremely humbled by the support from the community. It’s an amazing sight to see so many happy people stop by to view our display. With that, and the popularity, it just made sense to use our displays to raise money for charity. To date we have donated just about $35,000 over the past years since we started the fundraising! We eventually joined forces with Pathfinders of Milwaukee and have been partnered ever since. We feel Pathfinders is an amazing charitable organization that helps so many people and we’re proud to be a part of that!
Happy Halloween and we hope you continue to enjoy our displays year after year and that you continue to donate to support the homeless and abused youth of our city!
Thank you so much and we’ll see you at 2943 S Clement this year!
