Monster Day Greeley is happening THIS Saturday, August 18, 2018, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Downtown Greeley. There will be creatures everywhere and 40+ costumed actors roaming the area, but we also want to see your costume creations, so come dressed up and celebrate monsters with us. We’ll hold the costume contest around 6 p.m. on the main stage to let our first 40 entries show off their hard work and have a chance to win amazing prizes from Distortions Unlimited!


“How do I enter the costume contest?” We’re glad you asked. You will need to head over to the costume contest registration booth between 5 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. in the breezeway just east of Gentry’s on the 9th Street Plaza. (For time constraints, we do have to limit the contest to our first 40 entries, so show up at 5 p.m. to better your chances of being in the contest. Once you’re signed up, we’ll take your photo and direct you to line up in the staging area at 6 p.m. for the start of the contest. After the judges have a chance to see all of the costumes on stage, there will be a big “Shake Senora” dance while the judges deliberate, and when the song is over, contest winners will be announced on stage. (See the attached document for more details.)

Just remember it’s all about having fun. If you miss the cutoff, or you miss out on a prize, you still look amazing.

We’ll be giving away prizes for these judges’ picks:

  • Silliest Adult
  • Scariest Adult
  • Silliest Kid (14 and under)
  • Scariest Kid (14 and under)
  • Group
  • Most creative
  • Most Awe-Inspiring

We will also snap photos of all of our entries to do an “online favorite” that we’ll post on Facebook after the event.
