A Trout Creek woman is urging her neighbours to decorate their homes for Halloween, offering prizes for the best efforts.

Heather Pescada organized the contest, inspired by last year’s autumn-themed displays around Summerland’s downtown core.

“It looked so nice. Wouldn’t it be nice to have something like that in Trout Creek,” she said.

Pescada, who operates a salon in Trout Creek, decorates her business for every season.

In addition, she decorated her property for a Halloween fundraiser last year. The fundraiser brought 1,200 people to her yard.

She has set up posters and sent out an email message to Trout Creek residents, encouraging them to decorate for fall.

Prizes will be awarded in 12 categories.

The categories are:

o Most beautiful autumn display

o Funniest Halloween or autumn display

o Most kid-friendly display

o Best pumpkin display

o Most gruesome display

o Most creative/original display

o Most chilling Halloween display

o Most Christmasy Halloween light display

o Best inflatable Halloween decorations

o Most overall change in yard appearance.

One property cannot receive more than one prize, Pescada said.

The contest will begin Sunday, Oct. 30 at 3 p.m. And will end Monday, Oct. 31 at 9 p.m.

Ballots and ballot boxes will be located at the Trout Creek community board at the corner of Nixon Road and May Street.
