Kid's Costume Contest

Sunday, October 2, 2016


Cosplay is for all ages at SF and the kids, especially, love to come to sf as their favorite character. Last year was our first year having a Kid’s costume contest and it was a great success. We are offering that contest again this year and it will be held on Sunday during our Kid’s Day event. All kids 10 and under are free while accompanied by a paid adult. 

There will be 3 winner chosen in the Kid’s Costume Contest. All contestants will receive a prize for their costume. The judges will base the winner on the creativity of the costume and there will be a first, second and third place winner. All the contestants will walk across the stage at which time a photo will be taken before the judges announce the winners. Once the contest is over there will be a photo op of a group picture on stage of all the kids with the winners standing up front.

The costume theme can be any character from fairytales, story books, anime, horror, fantasy, SciFi, creatures, or movie characters.

How to Enter.

The contestants will meet at the ScareFest entrance at 1:00pm to sign in and get an individual number to hold while on stage in front of the judges. 

After a deliberation the judges will announce the winners of the contest.
