Halloween Decorating Winners

October 30, 2018

A BIG thank you to everyone who participated in Waterville Valley’s Scarecrow & Witch Contest in 2018.  Individual businesses looked frighteningly festive and the Town Square was exceptionally eerie! 

The esteemed panel of secret judges had a hard time picking a winner because each entry was unique.  In the end, the White Mountain Athletic Club was selected as the first-place winner with a prize of $75 for the Best Business Halloween Décor inside and out. Did you see the skeleton trying to hop the fence into the pool and Gollum peering out Rene’s window?
