Virtual Costume Contest open to all ages

October 26, 2013

Halloween is on Thursday this week, but you can dress up and get the fun started now by entering the Altus Times’ Virtual Costume Party costume contest.

It’s free to enter and vote, and you could win a prize for your costume. Just go to, sign-up, and upload a photo(s) of you, your kids, your office gang, grandkids, or friends dressed up for Halloween.

You can submit photos through 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, but voting begins on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 12 a.m. You want to get your photos up as early as possible, because the longer they are there, the greater the chance that someone will vote for you - and you want all the votes you can get!

Costumes with the highest number of votes from our viewers will receive prizes from sponsors. Sponsors this year include Community Action, Fusion Fitness Gym & Wellness Center, A Maytag Home Appliance Center, and the First National Bank.

For more information, go to the Altus Times website and click on the Virtual Costume Party box in the upper right on the home page. Good Luck, and Happy Haunting!
