Every year the holiday season is kicked off with the spookiest holiday of them all, Halloween! Each Merrill community celebrates in their own way, whether it be with a party, costume contest, trick-or-treating, crafts, or all of the above. This year we received so many wonderful photos and just had to share them with all of you!
The creativity we saw from residents all over the country was amazing as Bradenton (FL), Rolling Hills Estates (CA), and Clovis (CA) all went above and beyond! Bradenton residents took inspiration from Frankenstein as they created a festive pudding for their Halloween party.
Rolling Hills Estates residents also customized some tasty treats as they gave their strawberry desserts some personality of their own. The shocked faces on the strawberries never fail to make us bust out laughing!
In Clovis, residents used the classic medium of pumpkin carving to flex their creativity as they created some "eye-popping" results!
Residents in Knoxville (TN) and ChampionsGate (FL) hosted their own trick-or-treat events for the local kids and families! Everyone got into the spirit as they put on their costumes, handed out some festive treats, and shared a lot of smiles and laughs along the way.
ChampionsGate had their own trunk-or-treat event as residents and team members worked together to create a fun-filled experience for the local community!
Residents and team members in Gilroy (CA) and Port Charlotte (FL) went all out for their costume contests! In Gilroy, contest participants made their walk around the community as others wrote down their favorites and cast their votes. From witches to glasses of milk, everyone looked amazing!
Residents in Port Charlotte (FL) broke out their best costumes for their photo booth contest. It is incredible to see so many different costumes and ideas come out of a little friendly competition.
We love seeing everyone take advantage of the holidays and hope you had a great and spooky Halloween!
