Whilst the Lithgow Halloween street carnival has been cancelled for 2021, Lithgow Halloween Digital 2021 returns for a second year in a row.
The online event will have the Best Dressed competition and the popular Lithgow Halloween Smartphone Film Competition.
Lithgow Council decided to cancel the event due to the COVID-19 situation looking unlikely to allow gathering at major events, but for lovers of Halloween there is still plenty on offer.
Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson said 2021 has been a challenging year for events but Lithgow Halloween Digital gives people the ability to still participate and have some fun. "I would encourage people to participate in Lithgow Halloween Digital 2021 and be in the running to win some great prizes," he said.
The Lithgow Halloween Best Dressed competition is offering $4,500 in prizes and similar to the popular competition run in 2020 there will be multiple categories and plenty of prizes. More details of how to enter will follow soon.
Entries will close midnight October, 30, with an independent panel judging the entries, with winners announced in the first week of November 2021.
The second component of the Lithgow Halloween Digital festival is the highly successful Lithgow Halloween Smartphone Film Competition.
Lithgow Tourism and Events has once again teamed up with SF3 Smartfone Flickfest to provide support and specialist judging.
Entries opened in early August on the 'Film Freeway' website, and already 57 entries have been received.
