Wekiva Island to host Halloween costume contest Oct. 28

ORLANDO, Fla. (September 13, 2023) — With darkness settled over the island, Spanish moss swaying in the breeze and moonlight shining over the silent river, Wekiva Island is the perfect backdrop this spooky season. The local favorite is taking advantage of that this October with the ultimate Halloween party.

Wekiva Island will host its annual Halloween bash from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28.

The party will feature live music by the Hindu Cowboys, as well as spooky décor and drink specials. But the real draw will be the fan-favorite costume contest. Island guests go all out for the yearly tradition with hopes of taking home top prizes.

Prizes include:

  • The Island’s choice “Wekiva’s Wickedest” — $500 cash and a $500 Wekiva Island gift card
  • First place — $300 cash and a $200 Wekiva Island gift card
  • Second place — $250 cash and a $100 Wekiva Island gift card
  • Third place — $150 cash and a $50 Wekiva Island gift card
  • Best group — Beach Club cabana rental, including a case of beer, a case of Nutrl, and a cabana feast from up to 15 guests

The contest is only open to those 21+. Admission is free.
