Let Your Halloween Decorating Fears Rest in Peace

Is decorating season a hair-raising experience for you? Does trying to follow the rules make you feel more ghastly than ghostly? Don’t worry – we’re clearing the fog on holiday decorations as we move into the spooky season.

KICA’s Rules and Regulations document spells out the basics of all decorating that’s permissible on the island. Keep these basics in mind when choosing your decor:

  • A 12-Hour Window – Decorations or displays that involve illuminating light or emit sound that carries must be turned off no later than 9 p.m. each evening, and turned on no earlier than 9 a.m.
  • Limit Height – Inflatable decorations must not exceed 9 feet in height.
  • Be Considerate – Holiday decorations or displays must not interfere with the quiet enjoyment of the residential homes within the surrounding area.

Holiday decor can be placed 10 days prior to the holiday. So ready your broomsticks and shake out your skeletons – you can start decorating for Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 21. Your displays must come down by Nov. 7.

Next up: follow the same rules above for winter holiday decorations (Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa). These can be displayed from Thanksgiving until Jan. 15.
