City of Frightdale Halloween Decorating Contest

It is time for the 2022 City of Frightdale Halloween Decorating Contest! On Halloween, enjoy terrifying sights across the city and vote on who has the spookiest place! This year, there are TWO ways you can participate.

Sign Up and Decorate:

Click here to send an email to Recreation Coordinator Riley Sweeney at rileysweeney@cityofferndale.org by Oct. 25th with your name and address to be added to our interactive City of Frightdale Halloween map. You will receive a Frightdale yard sign with a number on it.

Then on Halloween, put out your scariest decorations and if you like, be part of those decorations! Make your front yard a graveyard and pop out of that coffin! As your friends and neighbors go by, they can find your Frightdale number on the map and score your house.

The high scoring houses receive gift cards to local businesses.

Participate and Vote:

Participants can travel around the city visiting all the spooky locations on our Frightdale Map (it will be live on Halloween here at www.cityofferndale.org/Frightdale). Find the spooky houses and score them as you visit.

If you score more than five houses, you will be entered into a drawing to win gift cards to local businesses.

Ready, Set, GO!

Explore your city, terrify your neighbors and have a fantastic (and safe) Halloween. For more information and questions, email Recreation Coordinator Riley Sweeney at rileysweeney@cityofferndale.org or call him at 360-685-2353.
