OBX Entertainment Announces 2016 Halloween Parade First Details
Registration for the parade opens and the pre-parade Halloween Festival begins at 2pm, featuring live entertainment, special guests, trick or treating, and new additions for 2016, including a pumpkin carving contest and an art exhibit showing off the entries in our first ever Halloween Parade Poster Contest, with details to be announced soon.
The walking parade around the Kelly’s property will begin at 3pm. Those who do not wish to walk in the parade can watch and cheer it on in the spectators area located in the Kelly’s front lawn. Everyone attending the event is encouraged to dress in costume in the spirit of the season.
All costume contest entries must be registered to participate in the parade and to be eligible for prizes.
Everyone who registers to walk in the Parade will be entered into the Costume Contest, with the winners to be announced during an Awards Ceremony immediately following the Parade. You must be present and remain in costume until the winners are announced in order to claim any prizes.
Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes among the parade entries in various categories and age groups, including Best Male and Female 5 and under; Best Male and Female 6-12; Best Male and Female 13-adult; Best Couple; and Best Family/Group Costumes, and a new category for 2016 to be announced in the coming weeks.
Admission to this rain or shine event is free for anyone wearing a Halloween costume.
The mission of the Parade of Costumes is to provide a safe and positive celebration of Halloween and its traditions, for Outer Banks locals and visitors alike, and Halloween lovers worldwide, with live entertainment and loads of fun for adults and kids of all ages.
