Halloween Costume Drive & Contest at McConkey’s

There are few things as awesome as getting free candy just by knocking on doors, but that’s what Halloween’s all about.

For kids, dressing up as a super hero, monster, princess, or anything else only adds to the excitement of trick-or-treating. Unfortunately, many kids on Edisto Island are unable to afford costumes.

That is why McConkey’s Jungle Shack is asking for community members to donate new or used costumes of all sizes so that all of the kids on Edisto are able to dress up, grab a bag, and load up on deliciousness. To pick out a costume, contact McConkey’s at 869-0097 or just visit the restaurant.

Costumed kids can also participate in McConkey’s annual costume contest that begins at 5:30 pm on Halloween night. Children are welcome to come and strut their stuff to show off their costumes in front of judges so that they can get a chance to win a prize.

McConkey’s will keep a donation box so that locals can donate this year’s used costumes that can be distributed to children next year.

In addition to the children’s costume contest, this will be the first year the dogs will get the chance to compete with one another to see who is the most well-dressed dog on the island.

At 6:30, after the prizes for the children’s contest have been given out, the dogs will take the stage (or, in this case, the deck) and show off their costumes.

Animal Lovers of Edisto will also be in attendance with some of their adoptable dogs, so be sure to come by and make a donation or just enjoy some adorable critters.
