Does your HighBall Halloween look have what it takes to win? Creativity competes for a cash prize at the HighBall Halloween public costume contests on Friday and Saturday nights. Enter your own handiwork or cheer on your favorites.

Stay tuned for Costume Contest categories!


All you need to do to enter is show up! On either Friday or Saturday, present yourself to the Costume Contest Coordinators at the Costume Contest tent. Contestants will be asked to walk the HighBall Halloween stage during pre-judging.

Our expert Costume Contest Coordinators will conduct preliminary judging of each entrance all night until 9:00 p.m. Friday and until 10:00 p.m. Saturday. Costume Contest Coordinators will determine admission into the contest, as well as placement into a specific category, and will give Costume Contestant wristbands to those who are accepted.

Once accepted, you are free to leave the Costume Contest tent and enjoy the HighBall festivities. At 9:00 p.m. on Friday and at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, approved Costume Contestants will return to the Costume Contest tent to begin lining up for public judging.

All contestants must fit into one of the defined categories to be in the contest. No more than 10 contestants for each category will be selected to compete. There may be fewer contestants, but no more than 10 for each category. Please review our HighBall Halloween Weapon and Prop Policy here.
