Enter the 2020 Downtown Westfield Virtual Halloween Costume Contest!

Families with children aged 14 and under are invited to participate in the Downtown Westfield Virtual Halloween Costume Contest. Due to Covid-19, we have created a new format for the 2020 contest. We are asking parents to submit a 30-second video of their child or family in a Halloween costume. Parents with multiple children may submit a video for each child.

Contest judges will choose the top two semifinalists in each category. The Downtown Westfield Corporation will contact each of the semifinalists to participate in a Zoom Event on Saturday, October 31, 2020 from 1pm to 2pm. 

During the Zoom Event a runner up and winner will be chosen in each category. Runners up and winners will receive a medal and a gift card to a downtown Westfield business.
