Dolphin Mall wants to lift customer spirits by supplying plenty of treats and no tricks this year. To keep the spooky spirit alive, customers are welcomed to participate in an all new Halloween at Home experience.

All month-long, while supplies last, customers are encouraged to stop by the mall’s Information Booth where they will be able to pick up their Halloween goodie bag. The goodie bag will include candy, chocolate, Bath & Body Works Pocketbac Hand Sanitizer, Kids Club Gift, Bakery Treat and their very own Passport to Shopping.

While picking up your goodie bag don’t forget to grab your “Participant” yard sign, so that you can join the Halloween House Decorating Contest. Customers are invited to decorate their front yard with all the best decorations, then snap a photo of the finished product and send it over to shopdolphinmall@taubman.com for a chance to win.

Dolphin Mall will post the pictures on their website and social media for followers to vote for the best Miami-Dade Halloween yard decor. All entries will have to be submitted by October 25. Three contestants will be selected. On October 30, 2020, the winners will be announced on the mall website and on social media. The following is a list of the prize(s) to be awarded to the three winners:
First Prize Winner: One Visa Gift Card for 1,500.00.
Second Prize Winner: One Visa Gift Card for $1,000.00.
Third Prize Winner: One Visa Gift Card for $750.00

Be sure to follow Dolphin Mall on Instagram, @dolphinmall for their 13 Days of Spooky Giveaway. Although COVID-19 has certainly changed the mall’s plans when it comes to the annual Spooktacular Halloween event, regularly held on October 31, the goal is to ensure that customers are able to have a fang-tastic Halloween at home.
