-Any kid can participate (Age categories: 6-8 & 9-12)
-You can get professional pictures of your children on stage competing
-They can win trophies, prizes, candy, PIZZA, and lots of other Halloween treats
-There are lots of games and activities for children to partake in
-There's a costume contest so kids can show off their Halloween spirit
