DJ AND COSTUME CONTEST!
FRIDAY, OCT 30 6:30 PM HISTORIC ASHLAND ARMORY
We are excited to announce that we are moving the Costume Contest out of the cold, wet morning of the race, to the warm indoors of the Friday night Pasta Party!
If you’re someone who never participated because the contest was too early, too cold, and occasionally too wet…then now is your chance! Come and test out your race costume, or come in a completely different costume! The contest will be held ON STAGE at the Historic Armory at 6:30pm during the Monster Ball Pasta Party, and will be emceed by OSF actor Christiana Clark.
An awesome Silent Auction will be available for you to bid on and entertainment will be provided for a fun family evening. We'll have a DJ providing music, and the Costume Contest will now be part of the Pasta Party event and will held on the stage at the Historic Ashland Armory!
The pre-race Costume Contest has been MOVED to the Friday Night Pasta Party event! See below for details.
THE COSTUME CONTEST IS OPEN TO ALL MONSTER BALL ATTENDEES.
Judging will take place on the Armory stage in each category. (Emcee and Judges to be announced) Judges will be looking for costumes that YOU have created – not purchased through a costume vendor. Winners in each category will be awarded a winner’s ribbon and will become a finalist for the overall best costume.
The Best Costume Finals will take place immediately following the category judging. Each category winner will compete in a costume parade on stage for first, second and third places for the best overall costume. Winners receive a Monster Dash winner’s trophy (past trophy shown below) and awesome gift certificates to local businesses!
