This year, Temecula is collaborating with the City of Murrieta and both cities will be hosting the Halloween Home Decorating Contest. Residents will enter the contest in their respective City and homes will be judged based on the category of their choosing. Both cities will select a winner for each of the four categories. Then the public will choose one overall winner based on the winners from each city, thus declaring the king of Halloween!
