It’s Halloween & Nightmare has always been about the creative expression of its family. We’re blown away each year by the costumes. There are very little restrictions on costumes but “plan smart!” That means nothing that can be used as a weapon or to inflict harm, impede on anyone’s ability to enjoy the show, or un-necessarily blocks space.
