As you’ve already noticed, Party City has turned the spooky up to 11 for Halloween 2023 and now they are rewarding Halloween enthusiasts for scaring their friends and family leading up to Halloween. Beginning on Friday, September 15 through Monday, October 23, Party City is launching their ‘Dare to Scare‘ contest to fuel inspiration for the frightening fun to be had this Halloween.

Last week, Party City launched a series of porch cam videos to inspire spooky set ups ahead of Halloween. The retailer is challenging fans to submit their own jump-scare videos pranking their friends and family on social media using Party City’s delightfully dreadful Halloween costumes, props, décor and animatronics for a chance to win the ultimate bragging rights. Fans can submit their own videos on social media using #PartyCityDareToScare.

Halloween lovers can vote on their favorite videos between Friday, October 27 through Sunday, October 29th where the winner will be crowned on Halloween. The video that receives the most haunting votes will win:

A $500 Party City gift card
Year’s supply of Tombstone Pizza
A two-night trip for two to Savannah, GA, including a ghost tour

What are you waiting for? If you need some ideas, Party City has a lot of great animatronics that would work very well for this kind of thing. Check it out below!
