Congratulations to the winners of the 2021 Coast Weekend Halloween DIY contest!
Last month, we asked readers to submit photos of their best seasonal home decor, costumes and treats.
We received a variety of submissions, which were then voted on by the public.
The winning entry is “Zombie Buffet,” an edible display described by creator Rosemary Johnson as a ham-covered skull with treats displayed in a zombie body.
The setup includes skeleton serving hands, paired with a side of delicious “intestines.”
The second-place winner is “Beware the Kraken,” submitted by Theresa Schlitt. The nautical decor depicts a pirate fighting off a Kraken. A Kraken is a gigantic sea monster that resembles an octopus or squid. The legend is rooted in Scandinavian folklore.
If you missed a chance to enter the Halloween contest, there’s another opportunity coming up.
Coast Weekend’s 2021 Photo Contest will launch later this month. Residents from along the coast, from Willapa Bay to Rockaway Beach, are welcome to showcase photos captured this year.
Three winners will be selected from the contest entries, plus a fourth People’s Choice Award winner.
The top 10 photos will appear in an edition of Coast Weekend. The top 25 photos will be published online.
