We host our annual Costume Contest Virtually each night for both adults and kids with great prizes donated by local organizations and businesses. To enter, email your costume photos to the Thursday before each event weekend and we'll post them in the on screen slide show and judge them in 4 categories: Kids, Adults, Group and Best Costume each weekend. 
Prior to the movies starting we have a host of activities for everyone to enjoy including Decorating Cars and seeing the displays, photo booth areas, our Haunted Cemetery Walk and of course all of our usual food and fun. Trunk or Treating has been cancelled for the 2020 event due to new state rules. 
You can find some roving monsters for picture opportunities before the movies start and at intermission on screen 2.
