Village Residents Invited to “Scare the Mayor”

Halloween House Decoration Contest

Village residents are invited to try their best to Scare the Mayor for the Village’s Third Annual “Scare the Mayor” Contest. This is a contest for the scariest, most frightful, scream worthy Halloween decorated house in the Village of Warwick. The contest is free to enter and only those living within the Village of Warwick are eligible. To register your house, please call Village Hall at (845) 986-2031 or email by Tuesday, October 29, 2019.

The event was introduced during the Village’s Sesquicentennial and is back again by popular demand. On “Mischief Night,” Wednesday, October 30, 2019, starting at 7:00 p.m., all participants will get a visit from Village of Warwick Mayor Michael Newhard and guest judges who will deem the ghouls and ghosts who scare them the most.

First, Second and Third Prize winners will receive a plaque that brags, “I Scared the Mayor.” Winners will be announced at the Railroad Green on Thursday, October 31, 2019 beginning at 5:00 p.m. as part of the Halloween Parade. So, string those purple and orange lights with care, spread cobwebs as far as they can bare, creepy skulls and candy corn too, anything spooky really will do. The Mayor anticipates the delights from all the scary frights, and they look forward to celebrating the best that residents can offer.
