This year marked the first time I've attended a Dark Shadows Festival, but I've had little time to discuss it here in the weeks (months?!) since. My schedule has been so cramped lately that there's little time to do anything more than make cameo appearances on social media. I've since banked podcast interviews with Marie Wallace, Will McKinley and Mary O'Leary ... all of which still await editing. Sigh.
Until I get my crap together, here are some photos taken during the festival of the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, N.Y. The property, which was the shooting location for HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS and NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS, was ready for fans that weekend. There were portraits of Jonathan Frid and Lara Parker on display, and one of the tour guides was decked out in full vampire regalia. I was unable to bring any camera gear with on on the trip, but my cell phone served as a decent enough backup. It makes me feel a little guilty about almost leaving it at an airport restaurant in Newark, N.J.
The format of this website isn't especially friendly for photo galleries, so I've posted the images at the CHS Tumblr feed ... which you can find HERE.
