Once again, Chelsea's Halloween Costume judging will be at the Cole Funeral Chapel parking lot! Cider and donuts will be provided, and we are adding a Jack-o-lantern contest this year.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE CHANGED THE TIME to allow judging before trick-or-treating and games (so the costumes will be fresh) and while it is still light out (so we can all see the costumes and get great pictures). Participants will go to their area for judging starting at 5:30, and we hope to announce winners and take photos starting at 5:45 pm.
For the COSTUME JUDGING, categories will be 5 years & under, 6-8, 9-12, 13-18, and groups. In each category, First and Second place will be chosen for Best Costume and Most Original. All contestants will receive a participant ribbon.
For the JACK-O-LANTERN contest (pumpkin carving), please bring your completed pumpkin to the funeral home parking lot by 5:30 pm, and it must stay on display until 6:30 pm. There will not be age groups for the pumpkins - children, teens, adults, and families are welcome to enter their pumpkin. Carved pumpkins or painted pumpkins are acceptable. First place will receive a $30 cash prize, second prize will receive $20, and third prize will receive $10. All participants will receive a ribbon.
After the winners have been announced, and pictures taken, we encourage you to enjoy Halloween in our town by trick-or-treating, and attend the Community Block Party (5:30-7:30 at the Washington Street Education Center).
