CHICAGO — It’s Chicago’s best dressed, Halloween costume edition. 

The city of Chicago and the Park District are teaming up to host the inaugural Halloweek Photo Contest, a citywide online costume contest that runs until 11:59 p.m. Sunday. Residents can submit photos of their Halloween costumes for a chance to win a 10-pound Blommer chocolate bar.

To enter, participants can tag @ChicagoParks on Instagram or upload their photo online here. Only one photo entry per account or online submission is allowed. Photos of individuals, families or pets are all accepted. 

Costume contest participants will be featured throughout the week on the @ChicagoParks and @MyChiMyFuture Instagram accounts.

Five winners — and recipients of the enormous chocolate bars — will be drawn at random after the contest closes. Winners will be announced in an Instagram post on @ChicagoParks on Nov. 2.

For a complete list of eligibility requirements and official rules, visit the Park District website.
