Win a $250 prize package!
This Wednesday, one house in the Copper Country will carry a special designation – The K-BEAR HALLOWEEN HOUSE. If you’re the first to find it, you’ll win a prize package worth $250.00!
Each weekday from October 25th through October 31st, we’ll reveal a clue as to the location of the Halloween House. A.J. Coffey will announce it several times on the Morning Show.
The clues will point you toward a street somewhere in the Copper Country. On Halloween, one of the homes on that street will be the Halloween House. If you’re the first person after 5:00 p.m. to visit the house and ask if it’s the KBear Halloween House, you’ll win a package of prizes from our sponsors, including…
Laiti Jewelers in Houghton
Continental Fire Company in Houghton
Kissell Chevrolet in Calumet
Crazy Joe’s Salsa – available at local stores
The Country Craft Cabin near Chassell
Basic Rules: An adult (at least age 21) must be present when the question is asked to claim the prize. The contest does not begin until 5:00 p.m. If you arrive at the KBear Halloween House before 5:00 and ask, you will be told that the home is NOT the Halloween House.
