Oakley residents are invited to show their best Halloween “spirit” during an upcoming decorating contest.
The city of Oakley has announced its annual Halloween decorating contest is underway, giving the resident with the best Halloween décor a chance to win a gift card to Ace Hardware.
This is the seventh year for the competition according to Lindsey Bruno, the city’s recreation director. The resident who is voted as having the best decorated house will win a $100 gift card to Ace Hardware as well as a decorative sign to commemorate them as the winner of the 2021 competition.
Entrants are invited to submit a photo or downloadable short video — no longer than one minute — through a form on the city’s website before the Oct. 21 deadline. Entries should consist of the home’s front yard or roof — no interiors — and videos may not feature any added effects such as filter, music or graphics. Decorations done by professional services will not be considered.
All entries received by the deadline will be posted online for the public to vote on before a winner is announced on Oct. 29.
