About the Costume Contest
The contest will offer entry into one of four categories:
- Day of the Dead-Themed Costume Category (13 years of age and older)
- General Category (13 years of age and older)
- Child (12 years of age and younger)
This year we will need audience participation in judging our beautifully dressed contestants. This will be done by texting a number on your phone so please don’t forget to bring it with you to participate!

Did you know Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival is a non-profit event? This means we rely on generous contributions from sponsors and proceeds gathered through various events and vendors. This year, entry to our costume contest will be a $10 donation, excluding the children’s category. Children’s category will remain at no cost. Rest assured; every bit of this fee will be directed back into enhancing the festival’s overall experience!
Wondering what you get for this $10 donation? Each participant will secure a slot in Denton’s Day of the Dead Twilight Lantern Parade! Moreover, all children who enter the Child category will receive a complimentary goody bag full of yummy treats and festive goodies. First place in each category will also receive a trophy, a spot as one of the Honorary Chairmen in the Twilight Lantern and Costume Parade, and their name and photograph on our social media accounts and in the Denton Record-Chronicle.
This stands as a fun way to lend your support to a beloved local festival.
