Thanks to Superstorm Sandy, Patch’s Best Halloween Costume in America Contest Continues

With Halloween on hold for so many due to the devastating storm, the deadline to enter and win a chance at $5,000 is extended to Nov. 5.


The local response to Patch's nation-wide search for the best Halloween costume of 2012 was strong and drew nearly a dozen uploads from Bloomfield Patch readers. Due to the reaction, and the postponement of most Halloween activities on the East Coast, we're extending the deadline for the national Halloween Costume Contest to Monday, Nov. 5.

Last year, the , won. This year, it could be you. Enter our contest for a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize!

Adults and children are eligible to enter. Parents can post costume photos of themselves and their families from this Halloween or from years past.

Here’s how to enter:

  • Simply click the green "Upload Your Photos and Videos" button above and upload your image (but first make sure you’re a registered Patch user).
  • Then add a caption with the name of the person in the photo and a description of the costume. To add a caption, click “Edit Photo” after uploading the image and fill in the caption line. Then click “Finished Editing.”

National judges will choose 21 finalists from each Patch state and select one grand prize winner based on who has the most creative and innovative costume (we've combined North Carolina & South Carolina for this contest, as well as Washington D.C. and Virginia). Each state finalist will receive $250 and one grand prize winner will receive $5,000.

If your costume is the best in Michigan and will put all others to shame, enter our contest now for the chance to win $5,000.
