Witch Hat Decorating Contest

Are you feeling witch-crafty? The Village of Tinley Park is hosting a witch hat decorating contest during this spooky season. Families are encouraged to pick up a hat at the Tinley Park Village Hall, 16250 S. Oak Park Ave., or at the Tinley Park Police Station, 7850 W. 183rd St., any time after Sept. 22. Ninety hats will be available, on a first-come, first-served basis, and an adult must fill out the registration form at the time of pick-up.

Simply decorate the hat as creatively as possible, using your own materials, and return it (with the included contact form attached to the hat) to Village Hall or police station by Thursday, Oct. 14.  A judging panel from the Tinley Park Marketing Commission will choose 13 winners. Winners will be announced  no later than Oct. 22.  

Winning hats will be on display at the Oak Park Ave Haunted Train Station during the Downtown Tinley Boo Bash on Oct. 24 and will remain there through Halloween. Winners will receive a Tinley Park swag bag and a three-pack of tickets to Odyssey Fun Farm, which is open now through Oct. 31. A big thank you to Odyssey Fun Farm for donating these tickets for our winners!
