Masquerade in Ghent costume contest + street party

Are you ready for a Ghouling Good Time?!?

Save-the-date for Ghent’s largest Halloween street party and costume contest – Masquerade in Ghent! Masquerade in Ghent will take place Friday, October 29, from 6:00 – 10:00pm in the heart of Ghent on Colley Avenue between Shirley Avenue and Brandon Avenue.

Show off your Halloween costume at the annual Costume Contest Parade. In an effort to streamline the process, pre-judging for the Costume Contest will take place at 6:00pm. The parade starts at 6:30pm and judges will award cash prizes for “Best In Show,” “Best Family or Group,” and “Best Adult.” Prize packets will be awarded to “Best Pet Costume,” “Best Child” (male & female ages 5-12), “Best Infant (4 and under),” and “Best Face Mask.” Register for free online at ghentnorfolk.org by Wednesday, October 27. There will be a $25 registration fee for entries submitted after October 27.

After the parade, get ready for a monster mash with live music by The Heart Stompers. Plus, there will be activities for kids, refreshments and adult beverages.

Masquerade in Ghent is free and open to the public. Ample parking can be found along the streets and parking lots. Don’t miss the frightfully, fun-tastic time at this year’s Masquerade in Ghent!
Masquerade in Ghent is proudly presented by the Ghent Business Association.
