Masquerade in Ghent

October 25, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT


Are you ready for a Ghouling Good Time?!?

Save-the-date for Ghent’s largest Halloween street party and costume contest – Masquerade in Ghent! Masquerade in Ghent will take place Friday, October 25, from 6:00 – 10:00pm in the heart of Ghent on Colley Avenue between Shirley Avenue and Brandon Avenue.

Show off your Halloween costume at the annual Costume Contest Parade. In an effort to streamline the process, pre-judging for the Costume Contest will take place at 6:00pm. The parade starts at 6:30pm and judges will award cash prizes for “Best In Show,” “Best Family or Group,” and “Best Adult.” Prize packets will be awarded to “Best Pet Costume,” “Best Young Adult” (male & female ages 13-18 years old), “Best Child” (male & female ages 5-12), “Best Infant.” Register for free online at ghentnorfolk.org by Wednesday, October 23. There will be a $25 registration fee for entries submitted after October 23.

After the parade, get ready for a monster mash with live music. Plus, there will be activities for kids, refreshments and adult beverages.

Masquerade in Ghent is free and open to the public. Ample parking can be found along the streets and parking lots. Don’t miss the frightfully, fun-tastic time at this year’s Masquerade in Ghent!

Masquerade in Ghent is proudly presented by the Ghent Business Association. Don’t forget to visit www.ghentnorfolk.org for more information and to register your costume! It will be a howling good time!!
