Ghosts, ghouls, werewolves and vampires alike are invited to enter MetroFamily’s Halloween Costume Contest! Parents will submit a photo of their kiddo (or all the kids) dressed in spooky-or-not Halloween costumes for a chance to win. Entries will be voted on by our readers, then the finalists from the voting round will be judged to determine the winner by the sponsors of the contest! Enter by Oct. 31 at midnight, and vote for your favorites from Nov. 1-4. Winners will be chosen and announced on Nov. 6.

Three winners will be chosen:

  • The first-place winner will receive a $100 gift card to Goodwill, as well as a weekend holiday getaway to the Gaylord Texan resort in Grapevine, Texas.
  • The second-place winner will receive a half day pavilion with 8 vehicle passes from Arcadia Lake ($75 value) and two tickets to Skeletons: Museum of Osteology.
  • The third-place winner will receive a Myriad Botanical Gardens Family Membership ($65 value) and two tickets to Skeletons: Museum of Osteology.
