The Best Of Halloween 2017: Contest Winners Announced

Can you believe Halloween 2017 is over?! As sad as it is, we’re looking back on our highlights of the season and announcing our contest winners.

Which Province Celebrates Halloween Best?

It turns out, there were many great things to do at Halloween across Canada and Melbourne, Australia but you voted Alberta as the best place to celebrate Halloween. Andrea Amy in Calgary was the winning Alberta voter and she won herself four tickets to the TELUS Spark science centre’s Shocktober activities, plus an annual membership.

Best Halloween Decorated House

You lot sure know how to make a house look terrifying! After much deliberation, it was decided that @melbiden13 on Instagram had the best Halloween decorated house of 2017. Imagine how long making all those gravestones must have taken!

Pumpkin Carving Champion

There’s no denying, we had some very creative entries! Maybe it was our stomachs talking, but the 2017 pumpkin carving champion was Kurt Winkler with his mouth watering burger pumpkin design. Plus, the fries are made of pumpkin! A special shoutout to Caila Seeley and Bradley Ronald who also had some very cool pumpkins.

In third place, and the winner of the VR headset, is Courtney Kristen Moreland and her family in their Scooby Doo costumes. We love The Mystery Machine too!

First Place Halloween Costume

Thank you to all of you that entered. It’s great to see photos of how you celebrate Halloween. But don’t let the fact that our Halloween stores have closed stop you from showing us your photos. We’d love to see photos of your costume parties, spooky looking cakes and gruesome makeup. Tell us what horror movies you’re watching and what scary campfire stories you’re telling. No matter what time of year it is, we can Celebrate Life. Halloween Style!
