What would Halloween be without costumes? And what would HALLOWEEN TOWN be without a costume contest? In this spirit, Boston HALLOWEEN TOWN, invites families from all communities to enter the “Spookiest, Kookiest, Ookiest Kostume Kontest – Ever!”

“The true key to this contest is to let your child’s imagination run wild,” says Mayor Bob Frapples of HALLOWEEN TOWN. “This is a contest for kids – they can look spooky, they can look kooky or they can try to figure out what looking ‘ooky’ would be! Kids should use their imagination and have some fun – the more unique, the better!”

Winners from several cities and towns will be chosen and awarded four free tickets to HALLOWEEN TOWN and must be present to compete to reign over Halloween Town in 2008 in addition to other prizes. The grand prize winner will be determined by celebrity judges and fans in attendance on Saturday, October 27th at 11 a.m.
