We love Halloween at SoWa! And there is nothing quite like our Halloween Costume Contest to end the outdoor season with a bang!
Our theme for the 11th Annual Market of the Living Dead is ..drumroll please .. Carnival of Curiosities! This special market will take place Sunday, October 26, 2014 at the SoWa Arts Market. Located at 460 Harrison Ave.
And we've got some fabulous prizes lined up for the best costumes! The contest is open to all so come on down, the more the scarier! The only hitch, costumes must reflect the Carnival of Curiosities (circus freaks) theme in order to enter.
In addition to the customer costume contest, our vendors will be competing for best costume, booth decor and decorated food truck. And you can bet the the costumes and decor will be amazing, considering we have some of the best artists and designers from around New England!
