As you can see from the photo above, we had a ghoulish time at the last UN-Beauty Costume Pageant 

We offer trophies, banners, gift bags and perhaps a surprise or two, and hope you will consider participating in this year's event.  It is a wonderful family event and a great way of using your Halloween costume several times for the season. We encourage ages 3 to 93, singles and groups.  This event is held on under 'The Fright Fest Tent' , so this is a "rain or shine" contest. 

Again, thank you for your support and Happy Halloween!




Saturday, October 17, 7:30 pm under The Fright Fest Tent

You are cordially invited to be a contestant in our UN-Beauty Halloween Costume Pageant.
