And since Halloween events are way more fun when everyone dresses up, there's a big incentive for bar crawlers to wear a costume. Winners of the costume contest will collect $500 for Best Individual Costume and $1,000 for Best Group Costume.

As for the three bars participating, they're all at Cira Centre South, but each will have its own theme.
