Here's what you need to do:
- Take video during your 2020 visit to Spirits on Sproat.
- Post it to our Facebook page (at fb.com/spiritsonsproat) by October 26. (We'd also love for you to share photos taken during your visit, so post those, too.)
- Like us on Facebook.
- Share your posted video on your own Facebook timeline. Make sure the post is public.
A few tips on taking and submitting videos:
- We prefer horizontal video over vertical video (it fills up and looks better on the screen)
- We especially love footage of our live scarers (like Michael Myers and Jason) creeping up and scaring people.
- Please aim for a reasonable video length; not too short (at least 30 seconds) or too long (not longer than 3 minutes) please.
- Do not post video recorded in past years. Only post fresh video recorded between Oct. 1 and Oct. 26, 2020, please.
- We will contact the chosen winner privately via Facebook on October 27, 2020, to arrange pickup of the tickets. Prepare to show a valid ID when you pick up the tickets.
