The adult and kid costume contest judging will take place 1 hour after the start of the 5K run. This means, at Fort Harrison, the costume judging will take place from 5:00PM-5:15PM Saturday, October 29th, 2016 at Sycamore Shelter at Fort Harrison State Park, and in Cicero, judging will take place from 11:00AM-11:15AM at the gazebo behind the library.
The costume judging categories are: Scariest, Funniest, Punniest, Most Creative, Laziest, Best Group (5+ people) and Best Couple Costumes. Age classifications for the contest are: 0 to 8, 9 to 13, 14 to 18, adult & pet. Yes, we are allowing your pet into the costume contest with their own awards!
Registration is FREE, and you don’t have to participate in the 5K to join the fun. We would like to ask, if you are not participating in the run, but are participating in the costume contest, to consider volunteering as a course marshall, or water table volunteer. Not only will you get a chance to make sure to lift the spirits of the tired runners, you have the chance to lobby the runners, who will be the ones voting on the costumes, to vote for your costume! You can volunteer for the 5K by selecting the Volunteer link from the menu.
