Oakley Events for October 2017

October is a special month in the United States, as it signals the beginning of the holiday season. From the tricks and treats of Halloween in October, the champagne popping parties for New Years Day in January, and the Easter egg hunting in April, there is a major holiday that defines many of the next months to come. Below I have a short list of some of the family activities that Oakley citizens can look forward to this month.

Hometown Halloween Decorating Contest

Do you love the spooky spirit of Halloween? If so, what better way to prove it by putting all of your ghoulish energy into house decoration? All residents of Oakley are welcome to participate in this annual Halloween house contest. You can cover your house with spider webs, skeletons, tombstones, or anything else that you believe captures the Halloween spirit. The rules and restrictions are as follows: No decorations installed by professional services. The exterior front yard and roof are the only areas that will be judged.
