You must register for your age group before the parade of costumes.
The first division will be called to the judging area on the Main Floor and asked to LINE-UP in the designated area. Everyone in this division will parade through the designated area in front of the judges. The judges will choose their favorites for prizes. The second and third divisions will follow.
