The Village invites residential homeowners to decorate their front yards in frightening fashion in preparation for the 5th Annual Carol Stream Halloween Decorating Contest. The Village challenges residents to put together some spooktacular displays for the upcoming holiday. Themes for our Halloween Decorating contest are:

Residents can nominate their favorite home(s) by e-mail at DecoratingContest@carolstream.org and must include the street address or addresses in the body and the phrase Halloween Decorating Contest included in the subject line. The deadline to forward nominations is Monday, October 21st. Judges will visit nominated properties and shortly thereafter make their award recommendations. Residents can view a Story Map on the Village website showcasing the nominated homes. Homeowners from winning displays will be recognized at a Village Board meeting.
