Kids usually know exactly what they want to be on Halloween. That’s the easy part. Now for the eco-minded, but also fun – part. This year, Moss Rock Festival and Alabama Baby & Child Magazine invite kids of all ages to think green this Halloween by participating in our eco-friendly costume contest. The ”Green Halloween Costume Contest” is designed to inspire kids to be imaginative and innovative by taking a more active role in their annual transformation, while also recycling, reusing, and repurposing in the process. And yes, even being scary for the spookiest holiday around.

To enter the contest:

  • take a photo of your child wearing their creation, then post your photo to our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/mossrockfestival) with these hashtags: #GreenHalloween #MossRock2013:
  • Get your family and friends to like it. The 5 costumes with the most likes will be in the running for the Top Prize.
  • We’ll choose a winner on Nov 1st @ 4:00pm.
  • Prize: a $25 gift certificate for art supplies at Forstall Art Center.
