Skeleton horse, drive and hearse.

The Boneyard Family

Come take a look. Skeletons riding bikes. Horse pulling a hearse. Wagon, a graveyard, with a growing family. Giant skeleton. Great attraction for kids and adults; always changing things.

Great stop! Ronnie came out to say hi to us and talk about his work. The skeletons are all on bicycles, and there are plans to grow the collection. The graveyard, colored lights, and 12-foot skeleton top it off nicely.

The Bone Yard

We dropped by on December 25, 2021, and the exhibit is still up. The real feature here is the one giant skeleton. The other skeletons are about 3 feet tall and not particularly impressive. This would be a 4-star stop if there were animatronics triggered by a motion sensor or the owners from their house. (Even just one skeletons arm or head. Probably the giant one as that's where people pose for pictures, have their backs turned, and have their guard down. Even a "cheese!" from the skeleton would get a jump and a laugh.)

The locals don't seem to appreciate it, as there were half a dozen beer cans that'd been chucked at it. We wish we'd brought a plastic bag; we'd have tidied it for the owners as a thank you for making this roadside attraction.

Covid-19 skeleton humor.

The Bone Yard

A collection of skeletons have been arranged with some humor from the Bone Family. It's on Vonore Road across from the closed Virgil's Market.

The world needs more displays blending Covid-19 and skeletons.
