pumpkin carving

Big or small, scenes or mean, smiling or scowling, show us your carved pumpkin. For the classic pumpkin carving contest, this year participants will need to carve their pumpkin at home and on Friday, October 30th, drop off the pumpkins at the ‘Little Scream’ event’s designated demonstration area to be judged by our special guest judges

Lake Worth Beach's Funniest Home Spooks

Like America’s Funniest Home Video see if you can capture the funniest ‘spook’ on video! Come up with a Halloween themed prank to get a spooky reaction and enjoy the laughs. Lake Worth Recreation will compile the best short videos and release the compilation at the Little Scream event, on the City’s youtube page, and social media. Entries can be submitted on the Lake Worth Beach Website.

Please remember to keep the video steady and clear. The entry should be no longer than 20 seconds.

Please note that the following will not be allowed:

Action that causes injury or danger to the participant, cameraperson or bystanders, action that disrupts a business, or action that disturbs public walkways or forms of transportation. All videos will be screened and are deemed suitable to the discretion of the Recreation staff.
