Bring your best costume to The Park!

Saturday, Oct. 26

4 – 7 PM

The Park at OWA is holding our annual Monster Bash Costume Contest on Saturday, October 26, 2019. This kid-friendly contest will be held inside the amusement park for kids of all ages to enjoy! There will be four age groups: 0-3, 4-6, 7-16 and 17+. Each age group will have three winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) and winners for overall categories among all ages: Most Creative, OWA Choice and Best Overall. Costume entries will be simple walk-on-and-pivot displays. The emphasis on judging is on costumes, but makeup, presentation and ingenuity will also be taken into account. The Park at OWA admission/wristband is required.
