REQUIREMENTS TO VEND AT OUR HAUNTED HOWL-O-WEEN EVENT

For example, cobwebs, hanging Halloween ornaments, etc. The decorations do not have to be extensive, but should extend the ambiance of the event. However, vendors will be voted on for best decorated booth by the public. Winners will receive a cash prize.


2. Vendors must be in some form of costume, even if it is simple makeup to give a ghoulish appearance. This event is meant to give a chilling experience to shoppers, so the whole venue will be decked out in theme.  Vendors will be voted on for the best costume by the public. Winners will receive a cash prize.


3. Tableclothes must be black, red, or another dark, spooky color to keep in context with the event theme.
