Our Halloween decoration this year
Minimalistic, but totally effective. As soon as the trick-or-treat official hours began at 4:30, a bunch of kids began to gather around the balloon. They were waving to friends and parents to "look at this," and they certainly didn't need the explanatory note on the grate, which says "WE ALL FLOAT DOWN HERE, GEORGIE." (cultural reference)
I watched from a window in the house as neighbors went by, taking photos of the balloon, taking videos of the balloon, and getting down on all fours to peer into the grate.
Next year I'd like to print a big photo of Pennywise to put at the bottom of the stormwater chamber. Ideally, I'd like to put a speaker down there to talk to people from the house and ask for Help! and "please reach down through the grating..." Not sure how to do that.
