Last year''s Halloween on the Green Best Dressed competition winners.

Goblins, ghouls and ghosts are invited to “show off their scary” at the Halloween on the Green event in Ferny Creek on Saturday 26 October.

The 2019 best-dressed competition is gearing up to be another year of creative spectacle as the organizers have gone all out to bring the biggest hills prize pool to the competition ever.

A combined $4000 dollars of vouchers and gifts is up for grabs said organiser Andrew Filip-Gautier.

“This is really an impressive collection of support from across our local business community and businesses outside of the community particularly given the current retail climate” said event director Andrew Fillip-Gautier.”

“We are looking forward to the creativity of the community with an emphasis on handmade costumes and culturally themed costumes. In almost every culture there is a belief that the dead should be honoured from All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day to the Mexican cousin of, Los Dias de los Muertos”

There are two categories for the best-dressed competition, with best handmade costume requiring the costume to be made at home and by the makers own efforts.

The best culturally themed costume category requires the costume to reflect Halloween or one of the many cultural events that are celebrated globally that represent that cultures tradition.
