Gremlins stole our brains! And maybe we had a little too much witches' brew while trying to sort through so many great contest entries.
But we goofed and included a few non-eligible photos in the finalists that we shared with you earlier. We promise to make it up to our spooky shutterbug friends, but we have to make things right and follow the contest rules.
You'll see some new photos in the mix and we've hit the reset button on the voting. (Hey, this is still a lot less embarrassing than that hanging chad business from a few years ago.)
Dear readers, ghouls and goblins,
We are happy to report that we got 140 wonderful, spooky, creepy fun photos from you, the Halloween loving public!
A team of editors burned the midnight oil to select five finalists in the Spooky Patch Halloween Photo Contest. Now it's your turn to decide on the winner!
So cast your ballot for your favorite Halloween decor. And please use the comments box below to tell us why you voted the way you did. (Or heck, just tell us why you love Halloween.) You can vote once every 24 hours. The voting period closes at noon on Halloween.
The person who submits the best ghoulish photos of Halloween decorations will get a $200 gift card. The winner will also be featured in an article on Patch and remembered forever in the Creepy People Hall of Fame. (OK, you know that doesn’t really exist, but we really like this idea.)
