Costume Contest Details

Swing into the fabulous fifties with the Flicks Among the Flowers Costume Contest!

The top contestants will win prizes from local businesses. Plus, you’ll score an Insta-worthy post at our photo booth. There is no formal entry for the contest, and we will announce the winner before the movie begins. Committee members will judge between 6 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.
