MHC News & Updates
For 2016 we’ll be doing things a little differently. Instead of hand-picking contestants for the Scariest Character Contest or early registration for the Miss Scary Midwest contest, we’ve decided to throw the doors wide open so EVERYBODY can compete! Beginning at 8:00 pm there will be a registration table (location TBD) complete with host and judges – if you’d like to compete in the evening’s costume contests, just sign up! The categories will be:
- Scariest Character
- Miss Scary Midwest
- Best Zombie
- Best Couple or Group Costumes
Registration will run from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm. Shortly after 10:00 pm, the finalists in each category will be posted at the registration table. If you are competing, IT IS UP TO YOU TO CHECK AND SEE IF YOU ARE A FINALIST. At 10:30 pm the finalists will start taking the stage and a winner named in each category; YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN, so check that list and listen for your name!
ENTRY FORM: You may print and fill out this entry form ahead of time if you prefer – just bring it with you to the party. We will also have blank forms at the registration table if you prefer to fill it out on-the-spot.
SPONSORSHIP: Want your company to sponsor one of the four costume contest categories? The 2016 MHC Sponsorship Kit is now available!
