It’s A Halloween Tradition

Being the proud Mom that I am, each year, on Halloween, I share a video. Not just any video, but the one that was filmed at Bacon’s Castle, and features my son, Marshall, who was an interpreter there at the time.

Here’s a little background for those of you new to the blog:

In 2007, just in time for Halloween, our local PBS station, WHRO, planned a series of video vignettes about supposedly haunted places in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area. 

The folks from WHRO visited Bacon’s Castle and decided that a video about the “Castle Light” would be part of the series.  The video would be just a few minutes in length, and would air with other videos in one of two thirty-minute shows.

WHRO staff members visited the Castle a few weeks in advance and, while there, met Marshall. They asked him on the spot if he’d play the “male lead”, and he agreed.

Of all the stories, pictures and events involving my family and Bacon’s Castle, the two most special to me, by far, are my wedding to Motor Man that took place there in 2002, and Marshall appearing in this video.
