Discover Doylestown launches Virtual Spooktacular


It may not be a traditional Halloween this year, but Discover Doylestown is making sure it’s still a fun one.

As part of the community group’s Spooktacular Parade Costume Contest, borough residents are encouraged to enter photos in one or more of four categories.

There’s the Best Costume for Kids; Best Costume for Pets; Best Costume for Groups and, new this year, Best Decorated House.

Submit your favorite photos to until Oct. 10. Voting begins Oct. 15 and ends Oct. 20.

One winner will be chosen in each category and prizes will be awarded based on who receives the most votes in each category, officials said.

Although people can’t gather in-person for the popular annual event, “we can celebrate creativity,” said a statement.
