Well another Halloween has come and gone and our annual Deadweird Costume Contest was better than ever with over 250 people competing to win cash and prizes. As usual there was the basic to the extremely complicated costumes with my personal favorites being the funny.

Hometown girl Rachel Hanna of Deadwood took home the $1,000 first prize with her Elvis and baby Elvis costume while second place went to Mike Powding of Rapid City and his Midget Goblin. Cindy Wheeler of Casper, Wyoming took home third place and $250 for her version on the Amityville Horror. Special awards including best group went to the Lollipop Gang, Medusa was the scariest and funniest was Michael Jackson. All in all it was a great event and I want to thank everyone who participated, we hope to see you next year.
