As a native of Alameda, I started Alameda - Haunt Your House! back in 2006 to
celebrate and honor my dad - an artist, maker, and lover of Halloween, a love I inherited.
I also wanted to highlight my unique hometown and the talents of all the amazing artists, haunters and makers who make up our community. I do my best to keep the contest as simple and ol' timey as I can, also in memory of my dad.
Setting up the event as a way to support the Alameda Food Bank was a natural extension of the spirit of the contest. Together with my husband and my fabulous friends, the Boo Crew, we've done nine contests over the years and I'm so excited to say, this year has been the biggest contest yet.
Bravi, city of Alameda!
You should know: this contest would not have been possible without the help of:
Mark Taxy * Mary Millosovich * Patty Devlin * Jill Mountjoy (yes, the Boo Crew!)
All the fabulous judges, including the crew from Creature Features (at their busiest time of year!)
A grant from the Alameda Public Art Commission
Support from the West Alameda Business Association
David at Alameda Advertising & Recognition
The Alameda Food Bank
and of course, my dad...
With much gratitude, Patti C.
