1. Witches

A Halloween classic! Will you wear a traditional black hat with spider earrings, or add a twist with a colorful wig and other fun touches?! You’ll be the talk of the park if you go the extra mile by wearing a light-up costume, complete with a witches’ broom!

2. Group Costumes

Will your crew dress as something funny like the cookie monster or something spooky like zombies? This can be an easy DIY costume for both kids and adults alike – the options are virtually limitless! Round up the gang and get ready to win big with your creative group costume!

3. Skeletons

Another Halloween classic — you can amp this idea up by using face paint or make up! You might even be spooky enough to win a prize or two! Plus, you can be a skeleton by yourself or gather up a group for even more bone-tastic fun!

4. Characters

Dress up as a cartoon or movie character, a superhero, princess, and more. Whether you want to dress funny or scary, there’s so many options to choose from! You and your best friend could even be Yogi Bear™, Boo Boo™, or Cindy Bear™!

5. Pets

Pets in costumes is one of our favorite parts of Halloween! Be sure to bring your pooch when you visit us this Halloween and come prepared with a costume! Keep scrolling for another one of our favorite pup costumes!
