Halloween Decorating Contest - Oct 3-8, 2007

Real Estate Agent with Platinum Realty 1999090686

The campground we go to hosts a Halloween decorating contest every year.  Prizes are given for first, second and third place for camps that are decorated for Halloween.  Last year, I won first place.  The prize was a spider blow-up decoration.  I wasn't going to decorate this year.  The entire bed of the truck was loaded with Halloween decorations, with little room for camping gear.  Then we had to unload, set up the decorations, take them down, load them back up and then unload when we got home.  It was too much work.

Well, a day before this year's trip, I started thinking about what I could do differently this year.  Long story short, I again loaded the truck down, and even strapped some decorations to the top of the camper.  We must have looked like the "Beverly Hillbillies" driving down Interstate 44 towards Ava...

I set up things on Thursday and Friday evenings when the sun had settled behind the hills.  It was too hot during the afternoon - not Halloweeen weather.  The judging was on Saturday evening and the prizes were awarded on Sunday.

I won second place this year.  The prize was a blow-up skull with spiders on it.  It will go perfectly with the spider blow-up from last year.

I wonder what I can do different next year.  Maybe I should rent a U-Haul...

These are great photos! I love decorating for Halloween! My favorite is to look at what others have done - it's always so unique. I usually check out all the contest pages to see what the "winning houses" look like - one of my favorites is the one that compnay that makes the inflatables does: www.gemmy.com/contest
