Are you getting in the spirit for Halloween? Before you hit the streets in search of tricks, treats and whatever else might be lurking in the shadows, send us a picture of your costume for our contest.
The top four photos will win a $25 prize, courtesy of Abracadabra -- Masquerade, Gag Gift and Magic Emporium, at 1009 Fording Island Road, Suite 104, Bluffton.
Send us your photos by 5 p.m. Tuesday. Go to www2.islandpacket.com/halloween for sending instructions or click on the Halloween Contest logo at islandpacket.com.
We'll post the photos at islandpacket.com and beaufortgazette.com, where online voting for the best ones will last two days -- Wednesday to 5 p.m. Thursday. Winners will be announced Friday. Photos also can be hand-delivered to 1809 Boundary St., Beaufort, or 10 Buck Island Road, Bluffton. Please include your name, where you're from and contact information. We'd also appreciate a note including all the ghastly details about the photo you send.
