My husband & went to this event on Sat 7:00pm & there was absolutely no special Frankenweenie food near the New Holland Pet Cemetery photo op, which was BTW so small it was ridiculous! There was hardly any Frankenweenie merchandise in D-Trend & no mobile carts anywhere had merchandise. It was so disappointing - we live locally & we know DD can get crowded on Sat nights, but we went especially for this event & to try the Frankenweenie sausage dog which looked delicious in a photo. We couldn't get in to eat anywhere else since it was so busy so we left. we will never attend anything hyped like this event at DD again - not worth the trip or aggravation.

Oh no Pamela! I am so sorry to hear that this event fell so short. The press release (where this post's information came from) had made it sound like a lot of fun. I wonder what happened.
