There is a chill in the air and football season is in full swing. As the leaves change on our streets, it’s time to think about Halloween in the Hills. After much discussion, the Worthington Hills Civic Association has decided to keep this year’s events virtual with a focus on fun contests that all neighbors can safely participate in including house and street decorating and pumpkin carving/decorating. Our favorite neighborhood fox, Forrest, will also be popping up so be sure to keep an eye out for our furry little friend. Keep reading for more details.
Spookiest Street in the Hills/Most Decorated Street: We know how creative streets can be when neighbors work together so this year we’ve added a street-level competition. The street that goes all out will earn the “Spookiest Street” award which includes a street sign that will be displayed throughout the year.
Halloween in the Hills House Decorating Contest: The family who showcases the greatest Halloween display will win the grand prize of a basket filled with treats from locally owned businesses.
Finding Forrest the Fox Contest: on Sunday, October 31st the first family or individual who can find our sneaky neighborhood fox, take a picture of Forrest in his hiding spot and post it on WHCA Facebook page on Halloween will win a basket filled with fall goodies.
Pumpkin Carving/Decorating Contest: We received so many positive responses from last year, we decided to bring back the pumpkin carving/decorating contest this year. Individuals and families who wish to participate should have a picture of their pumpkin(s) no later than 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 30th. Categories include: Silliest, Most Creative and Scariest – cast your vote in each category by visiting our Facebook page and giving your favorite pumpkins a “like”!
Reminder: Perry and Sharon Townships and the City of Columbus have announced that Trick or Treat will be held on Thursday, October 28 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
