Virtual Contests Held for Annual Fall Festival

By Dodie Manuel

Although COVID-19 set new guidelines on how to celebrate the Halloween season this year, that did not stop the SRPMIC’s Community Relations Events team from presenting the annual Fall Festival. To keep the spooky spirit going, the Fall Festival was celebrated virtually, with three contests this year: pumpkin decorating, house decorating and the annual costume contest. 

Registration began on October 7 and lasted until October 30, giving participants plenty of time to put on their best costumes and décor. Participants were asked to send in pictures or video to be judged in separate categories. 

The costume contest awarded first, second and third prizes in age categories 0 to 5 years, 6 to 10, 11 to 15 and 16+. The house decorating contest categories were Spooky, Spirited, Fall Festival theme and Unique. Finally, the pumpkin-carving contest had categories of Halloween theme, animal theme, most unique design, Disney/cartoon and scariest theme.
