Come out and see the City of Hauntington transformed into Halloween FUN with this year's Halloween Decorating Contest!

This year, homes and businesses entered with the hopes of taking home the top prize in each category:

Bloody Good: When the British think something goes above and beyond just good it is Bloody Good. This category is for those who like to haunt in the spirit of horror movies.

Bewitching: Gothic beauty or quirky stories told with skeletons. This category is for haunters who ask - what would Morticia do?

Bootiful: Cute cartoon characters or ghosts with grins. Happy bats and stylish pumpkins make this a category for G rated haunts.

Business: Best overall business

Official judging will take place starting October 23 and run through October 25th. A map of all haunt locations IS NOW AVAILABLE and the winners will be announced on our web page and social media. All haunted locations will be available for viewing through Halloween!
