By now you've heard about our family's Good Sport trophy in the Bay Head Halloween Parade, and we're wondering if we can add a $100 restaurant gift certificate to our Halloween good fortune. Our daughter, London, snapped the photo on the right of mom and dad dressed up as '70s era Ken and Barbie dolls at the Bay Head Halloween Parade last weekend. A photographer from the Star News Group, publisher of The Ocean Star, saw the two of us in action and suggested that we enter our photo in the First Annual Spooktacular Halloween Photo Contest.
Whether the costume is scary and ghoulish or downright foolish, Star News Group wants to see area residents decked out in full Halloween regalia. Prizes will be awarded to winners named in three categories — adults ages 18 and above, children ages 17 and under and pets. Rex and I will be competing for the adult prize -- a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant of the winner’s choice from the online StarNewsGroup.com Restaurant Guide. For children, the grand prize will be a $50 gift certificate to Quinnderella’s Toys in Manasquan. For pets, the grand prize will be a $25 gift certificate to B.C. Woof in Manasquan. Photos can be submitted via e-mail to contest at starnewsgroup dot com or dropped off in person at either The Ocean Star office, 421 River Avenue in Point Pleasant Beach or The Coast Star office, 13 Broad Street in Manasquan. All photos submitted must be the property of the entrant. Upon submission, all photos become the property of Star News Group and may be published in print and online.
Wish us luck!
