At the October 30th Awards Ceremony held in front of Town Hall, EDC members announced the folowing winners. The prizes included a fine trophy topped by a witch on a broomstick and gift certificates to local businesses.
Third Place - Richard and Catherine Ciampa, 13 Pine Acres Rd.
Second Place - Russ and Jackie Langille, 39 River Rd.
First Place - Jeff and Sophie Brockstedt, 6 Sullivan Drive
Every winner received a round of cheers and applause and there were smiles aplenty.
In addition, the Manchester Union Leader ran a story about the contest in their NH Weekend section on October 29th. How's that for free publicity?
The Allenstown Economic Development Committee (EDC) is sponsoring a Townwide Halloween Lighting Contest this season. We know there are many people who love to decorate their homes in the Fall, so we decided to turn it into a special townwide event as part of our Community Initiatives.
Winners will be announced and prizes awarded at the Awards Ceremony at Blueberry Express Park (Town Hall lawn) on Friday, October 30th at 5:00 p.m. Awards for the Best Halloween Decorations include 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies and gift certificates to local businesses.
Write a Spooky Story
The EDC also would like to challenge school students to write a short spooky story and read it at the awards ceremony. That will make the event especially memorable. Contact the EDC if you would like to do that.
What You Need to Do
Wait until October 11th to vote because we will keep adding addresses until then.
The Halloween Lighting Awards Ceremony takes place on the Town Hall lawn on Friday, October 30th at 5:00 p.m. Come and celebrate!
