The Talking Tree is a Halloween event put together by the Frayer Family of Sarasota Florida. The Frayer's create a larger-than-life scene depicting a real tree that talks and sings songs while sitting amoungst it's friends in a graveyard. This year, his friends include Pine cones, a tombstone and a talking grave as well as others. The graveyard is full of tombstones with rather unusual sayings that are quite comical like, "I told you I was sick". 

The tree and it's friends have moving parts controlled by puppeteers and can interact with the public. This display happens for the two days leading up to and then including Halloween.

"We don't want to bring the gory scare to people on Halloween, but rather a character based display that brings the community and families together."

While the Frayers have a passion for bringing thier community and families together for this project, the money needed to build this project is in short supply. They are thrifty and know how to make something out of nothing, but in this economy, nothing still costs money. They are looking for help to buy basic need items for constructing the tree and the graveyard materials. They make everything themselves.

Since this is for the community and is operated on Halloween, the cost for Candy is through the roof as well and some of the money raised here will also go towards this need as well.  

The last time the Frayer family operated the Talking Tree, over 6 years ago, they saw over 1000 people visit the display within 3 days. Unfortunatetly, thier previous supplies did not last the test of time.
