Oct. 24, 2011 – Having the spookiest house on the block will attract more than just eager trick or treaters this Halloween. This Oct. 31, the Briarbrook and Morgan’s Grant Community Association (BMGCA) is asking residents to nominate their favourite house for a chance to win great prizes from our local sponsors.
“The contest is a great way for people to get creative, have fun and get into the ‘spirit’ of the haunting season,” says Margaret Sambol, BMGCA director of communications.
Nominations should be sent to email@example.com and should include the street address of the nominated home, the reasons why you admire the decorations, your name and photos or videos of the decorated home. You can nominate your own home. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011.
Prize packages from the Elk Ranch and Hall’s Apple Market will be provided to the top three decorated homes as decided by our panel of judges.
