General Rules:

  • No entries will be considered after check-in and judging has begun. Advance online registration is coming soon.

  • No skits will be allowed.
  • All costumes must be family-friendly. Gore, graphic violence, nudity, swearing, or other objectionable elements may be grounds for disqualification as determined by the Costume Contest staff.
  • Realistic-looking firearms and weapons are discouraged and must be peace-tied.
