GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Last year, 19 houses around Glens Falls pulled their skeletons out of the closet and onto the lawn. This year, they’re once again filling their gardens with ghouls, as voting opens for the second annual Glens Falls Halloween House Competition.

The contest runs until midnight on Friday, Oct. 27. From now until then, voters can check out 22 houses around Glens Falls where families have taken decoration seriously and are looking to win. Votes are collected through a form online.

This year’s participating houses include:

  • 281 Ridge St.
  • 29 Haviland Ave.
  • 2 James Court
  • 77 Sanford St.
  • 8 Ida St.
