  1. No, it were people I knew. I dont know if the display is going to be put up this year. Things on Long Island are very difficult, (along with the rest of the country). I do know the electric bill was something like 10 grand for the month, and that was back in 2008. The display wasnt put up last year.

  2. It takes every weekend, starting the first weekend of September, and some weekdays to get it all done right before December 1st. Alot of molds are attached to piece of lumber, usualy 6 to 8 in a row, and then placed on the ground and anchored. It makes for easy and quick set up. There were about 6 people working on the display every weekend.

  3. Hello all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The display was down last year due to financial difficulty. The cost for this was astronomical. I dont know about this year either. I do know where half the molds are however :-)

    We usually ordered directly from General Foam. Been out of touch for a while since I no longer live on Long Island. But I will see what I can find out.

  4. The new blowmolded plastic Halloween pails in my Local Supermarkets are no longer General Foam. They are made by a company in Mexico called Amloid. I wonder if this could be the start of more blow molds :-)

  5. That choir display is my friends house on Long Island NY. I will post photos of the entire display. Sadly, the display was not put up last year, and , I am not sure about this year either due to financial hard times with electricity and the friends business slowing down.

    My choir display is about 80 of the kids, 12 poloron/Empire 60" choir people and a couple of the 6 foot fiberglass ones myself. I will post pics of the entire display.

  6. What years were these made? Were they early 70's?

    I would like to get more of these. The ones that I see on Ebay though are usually cracked and broken. These would be a nice change,

    Right now I am using about a total of 50 Lamposts, mostly the Empire Red Ones, and about 20 of the Union Ones.
