Village residents are invited to try their best to Scare the Mayor for the Village’s Seventh 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 Village of Warwick residents are eligible to participate. If your home won first prize the previous year you are ineligible to win first prize this year but can still participate in the contest. To register your house, please call Village Hall at (845) 986-2031 or email by Friday, October 27, 2023.

On Monday, October 30, 2023, starting at 7:00 p.m., all participants will receive 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.” Additionally, one select home will receive, “The Karl Scheible Award for Exemplary Skill and Thematic Creativity” in honor of late Village of Warwick Planning Board Member, Karl Scheible who created the original ‘Haunted House’ on Oakland Court. Winners will be announced on Facebook. So, string those purple and orange lights with care, spread cobwebs as far as they can bear, 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. For more information, please click here.
