You are so booed!

Sandra ClarkNorth Knoxville, Our Town Neighbors

The residents of Sterchi Hills are all-in for getting booed. It’s a pre-Halloween internet thing that’s quickly trending. How it works:

A Halloween boo is a small gift or treat left anonymously by a friend or neighbor, and once you’ve been booed, you’re expected to hang a picture of a ghost on your front door. This lets everyone know you’ve gotten your surprise. Then you are asked to boo two others. Amazing how quickly this spreads. Just skip those political brochures in your boo bags!

The great pumpkin(s)

Amanda Trentham shared the Spooktacular Pumpkin Contest, hosted by the Evans family at 6742 Timber Run Lane. It’s Sunday, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m., and is sponsored by the Sterchi Hills Homeowners Association and Deana Evans.

  • You must fill out an entry form and pay a $5 fee (covers the lighting to inside and the trophy)
  • You drop off a completed Spooktacular Pumpkin on October 30 at the Evans family home
  • Surprise judges (announced later) will vote for their favorite spookiest pumpkin
