Annual Halloween Costume Contest & Parade at Pearl City Shopping Center

Oct 30, 2011 | PC Community

 

The Pearl City Shopping Center Merchants Association presented their Annual Halloween Keiki Costume Contest & Parade Saturday, October 29. Chuck E. Cheese Restaurant hosted the costume contest along with participating PCSC merchants tossing out treats to parade participants as they made their way around the shopping center.

A couple hundred Halloween costume contestants lined up well before the scheduled 8:00am contest registration and judging start time. The contestants came in a wide variety of costumes from vampires to a soda fountain costume that actually dispensed your favorite beverage.

The crowd was anxious for a chance to win Pearl City Shopping Center Gift Certificates that were awarded to the top two finishers in four categories in three age groups:

Categories:

Most Original Costume, Scariest Costume, Best Parent-Child Costume, and Best Movie Theme Costume.

Age Groups:

5 & Under, 6-8, and 9-12.

First place winners received a $50.00 Pearl City Shopping Center Gift Certificate. Second place winners received $25.00.

The following prizes were also very generously donated by Chuck E. Cheese Restaurant:

12 First Place Prizes of Chuck E. Cheese Pizza Fun Parties

12 Second Place Prizes of 50 Chuck E. Cheese tokens

Coach Scott Keopuhiwa and the Leahi Soccer Club and their chaperones did a great job volunteering as costume contest judges and score tabulators.

Steve the Clown entertained the crowd with his balloon magic and served as the master of ceremonies during the awards presentation.

Mahalo to Chuck E. Cheese managers, Jodie Hasche and Alison Hayami and the Chuck E. Cheese staff for their hospitality and efforts in hosting the event again this year.

Also, Mahalo to Sheri Rolf and George Cochard from Rolf Advertising for their expertise and talents in organizing the event as well as handling all advertising and public relations.
