Halloween 2009 Decorating Contest!

There is nothing like walking or driving through a neighborhood and seeing homes decorated for the holidays. Rivermark is already well known for impressive Halloween decorations and attracts hundreds of trick-or-treaters each year (we had almost 300 visit our townhome in 2008).  I would be proud to sponsor the first Halloween Decorating Contest in Rivermark.

The rules are simple.  Homes with the most impressive Halloween displays on Sunday, Oct 25th will win lucrative prizes.  Why Oct. 25th? This will give everyone in the community a whole week to enjoy your decorations before Halloween!  The 3 criteria for the contest will be decor, lighting, and creativity.  We will also be doing a pre-screening Saturday, Oct 24th between 6-9pm.  If you want to be considered for the competition it is important that you leave your lit decorations on at this time, so that we can easily identify homes with decorations.  Winners will be notified by Oct. 28th!

  1. I'm really into halloween but when I've decorated early my decorations have been stolen or vandalized.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your experiences in the past. So far, we haven’t had any problems with people vandalizing our decorations. I think it helps if you put up lights or decorations that stick into the ground like signs. We have a few special, more expensive decorations (like a dancing skeleton) that we save for the day of Halloween; but most other decorations we put out 2 weeks earlier.
