Skeleton Craze

Local businesses are preparing for another month of Skeleton Craze window displays throughout our business corridors. Each participating business will once again decorate a skeleton in their storefront. Kicking-off Arts Month in the Pikes Peak region (October 1) and concluding on El Dia de Los Muertos (November 1), this event continues to be a great way to support local businesses and organizations

Kathy Minch, Sallie Knox Hall, and Annie Schmitt will judge the displays based on creativity and visual impact. Ballots for People’s Choice will be available as paper ballots printed by the Chamber of Commerce team and online through the Creative District website or via in-store QR code short links on posters and in weekly Pikes Peak Bulletin ads.

Paper ballots can be dropped off at the Chamber of Commerce office or the ballot box at the Wichita parking lot.

The winning displays will receive gift cards:

1st Place $250
2nd Place $100
3rd Place $50
People’s Choice $100
Winners will be announced in the first week of November.

This event is sponsored by: The Manitou Springs Creative District, The Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce, Office of Economic Development and Visitors Bureau, and the Pikes Peak Bulletin.

Businesses can still register to participate until Friday, October 8.
