We are very pleased to announce the winners of the VVHA Halloween Decorating Contest!
Honorable Mention: Most Magical
5022 Laurelgrove Avenue: Peter Moyer had an interactive electronic magic mirror with an animated character that spoke to the trick or treaters. Young children were awed!
Honorable Mention: Most Gruesome
12227 Addison Street: The Dautervive Family had a body chained to a table with its guts hanging out and the head peeled back to revealing its muscles. Yuck!
Third Prize and Winner of a Gift Certifcate to Marie et Cie.:
4900 Gentry Avenue: Jim Huppenthal and Sean McMahon have perfected the ghostly graveyard. A haggard witch stirred a pot in the window. Colored lights illuminated wispy ghosts. Jim and Sean have been decorating their home for many years and have delighted youngsters and old alike.
Second Prize and Winner of a Gift Certificate to Harvest Moon:
5123 Radford Avenue: Ernie Merlon’s haunted home is known outside the Valley Village community and draws hundreds of people to his door on Halloween night. This year he planted a corn maze! Each year he challenges himself with different effects. Autistic students affiliated with Exceptional Minds Studio assist Ernie with the special effects.
First Prize and Winner of a Gift Certificate to Red Moon Restaurant:
4852 Gentry Avenue: Rasha & Stephanie Drachkovitch had a Monster Maze that just wowed our judges. Scary eyes directed visitors to the entrance. Inside there were dozens of skeletons, zombies and ghosts to be seen while “DJ Bones” played scary music. This presentation conjured everything Halloween and was the penultimate experience.
