Who or What Are You Being for Halloween?

October 26, 2015

This Halloween, the City of Greenbelt is handing out to its community members the sweetest treat ever: an excuse to wear their well-orchestrated, wish-I-had-thought-of-that, totally amazing costumes TWICE!

The Friday before Halloween, October 30, the City of Greenbelt will be hosting their annual Costume Contest & Parade at the Roosevelt Center, located at Crescent Road and Southway Drive.

At this FREE event, prizes will be awarded for: the most innovative costume in each age group, the best family costume and the best pet costume. That being said, we’re not taking this year’s costume contest lightly.

To help the residents of ROSS’ apartments in Greenbelt outdo last year’s costumes, here are the Top Five Fantastic Family Costumes that will have a sure shot at best in show at the Greenbelt Costume Contest:

1. Dress as everyone’s favorite mismatched gang, the cast of “Despicable Me!”
