No matter how old we get, Halloween is still one of the most fun and widely celebrated holidays in the US. San Diego in particular has some great spooky activities, parties, and more. Every year, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront likes to show its Halloween spirit through several treat filled contests: Guess the Number of Candy Corn, Best Costume, and Pumpkin Carving/Decorating. These contests are fun ways to show off our silly, scary, or creative sides, often while collaborating on these fun projects.
The Pumpkin Carving/Decorating contest is probably the most recognizable and competitive of our Halloween celebrations. Each department has the opportunity to submit a team entry into the contest, and the masterpieces are then voted on by our Guests. This year, the pumpkins honored our sunny San Diego location, the spooky creatures of Halloween, and even the departments that crafted them. All of the teams put in a great effort, and no doubt grew closer for it, but the fantastic winner (and winner of a team pizza party!) was Property Operations with their homage to our beachy lifestyle: a vintage Volkswagen Bus complete with lounging beachgoer and surfboards.
We’re already planning next year’s entries!
