Omaha Mom is excited to host our FIRST Virtual Halloween Costume Contest!
One of the greatest joys in parenting is dressing our children in Halloween costumes. The joy we receive from planning their costumes and then wearing it for everyone to see is infectious! It makes the sugar crash, unpredictable weather, and impending time change a little more tolerable when there’s a parade of Elsas and Marvel Superheroes.
Halloween 2020 will look a little different (remember last year we were worried about snow…that was cute), but that doesn’t mean it’s canceled! Whether you’re celebrating at home or getting a group together and hit the local pumpkin patch, costumes are necessary! Omaha Mom has partnered with some amazing businesses and put together some pretty awesome prize packages…you’re going to want multiple costumes to enter each category!
