Costumes do not need to be handmade. Both bought and handmade costumes are welcome.

The Grand Opening Ceremony is a family friendly event; therefore, we don’t permit face-masks, weapons, violent and sexual content and nudity. Costumes cannot resemble law enforcement or military tactical. Generally, nothing that makes patrons uncomfortable or cause unrest/disturbance is permitted.

Contestants are expected to obey all local, provincial and federal laws and bylaws governing the venue location. Those who do not comply will be removed from the premises. If the nature of the infraction is severe, the proper authorities will be contacted.
