NIAGARA FALLS, ON - Halloween might look and feel a little bit different this year, so the City of Niagara Falls has launched the Spooky Awards to encourage residents to celebrate Halloween in a new and creative way. 
“Halloween is a special time for kids and adults alike, and it is important that we, as a City, find new ways to celebrate this fun occasion responsibly and safely. The Spooky Awards will do just that, offering home owners an opportunity to showcase their festively decorated homes, and residents a chance to tour the City safely to see all of the fun creations,” said Councillor Chris Dabrowski.
The Spooky Awards encourage home owners across the City of Niagara Falls to deck their homes out in Halloween décor for a chance to be crowned an award winner in the following categories:

  • Best Effects
  • Judges’ Favourite
  • People’s Choice

Homes in Niagara Falls that officially enter the contest on the City’s website will be judged by a panel for the Best Effects and Judge’s Awards. The People’s Choice Award will be selected through an online voting opportunity featured on the City website. The winners will take home Spooky Awards, as well as a handful of prizes! The deadline for contest entry is October 26th at 4:00 pm.
A map of the locations of the Spooky Awards home entries will be available on the City's website starting October 28th at 4:00pm, providing residents an opportunity to safely view all of the fun Halloween home decorations.
