Residents of Scary Town Names Benefit This Halloween

Share Article

Shindigz offers a special promotion to those living in towns with creepy names.

Every Halloween, those living in a handful of cities across the U.S. have a special way to add to the creepiness of the holiday. They just have to look at the name of their city. These include residents of unpleasantly named cities like Little Hell, Virginia; Hazard, Kentucky; Bat Cave, North Carolina; Casper, Wyoming; Devils Lake, North Dakota; Gnaw Bone, Indiana; Erie, Pennsylvania; and Skull Valley, Arizona.

What’s the advantage of living in a city with an ominous name? “Everyone in those cities should get a Halloween party banner for just $1,” says Keith Bansemer, Director of Internet Marketing at Shindigz, the world’s largest online party store. “Why not celebrate the macabre holiday by letting every household create their own personalized party banner. Whether they use the banner for trick-or-treat or their next birthday party, we’ll leave that up to those residing in those hideously named cities.”

Shindigz sells unique party supplies with custom 18x54-inch vinyl banners being one of their most popular products. “Party hosts become the artists and design their banners by adding their own words, photos, and colors online,” notes Bansemer. “The banners normally sell for $14.99 each, but are $1 for anyone with a city in their address that can be considered frightful.”

There are over 50 American cities that can be considered to have scary names including Frankenstein, Missouri; Slaughter, Louisiana; Satan’s Kingdom, Massachusetts; Munster, Indiana; Savage, Minnesota; Ransom, Kansas; Hell, Michigan; Deadwood, Oregon; and Scary, West Virginia.

Those living in a town with a scary name can redeem their banner by visiting and use the promotional code SCARYBANNER at checkout.* This opportunity is available to the first 1,000 banner orders.
