Hey, Rochester! Patch’s Halloween Costume Contest Has Been Extended to Nov. 5

Because of Hurricane Sandy and the delay of Halloween activities on the East Coast, our contest deadline has been extended. We're searching for the best Halloween Costume in America. Enter yourself or your kids for a chance to win $5,000.

This story has been revised since its original posting with an extended deadline of Nov. 5 11:59 p.m.

It doesn’t matter if you’re Lady Gaga or Lady Liberty for Halloween—if you have an awesome costume, showcase your creation in our Best Halloween Costume in America Contest.

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:

  • Click the green "Upload Your Photos and Videos" button above and upload your image (but first make sure you’re a registered Patch user)
  • 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.”

The contest runs from Oct. 15 to Nov. 5. National judges will choose 21 finalists—one 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 and 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.

Seriously fun costumes here. Stella - was the green morph suit a cactus? Kasia - love the loofahs. And Sandy - all the iPhone costume is missing is a Patch app icon :)

Do I get automatically entered because I harassed you in my costume?
