  • Pets:  You can’t go wrong with a Halloween Costume Contest for pets. People love pets and seeing them dressed up in all sorts of crazy costumes.
  • Halloween Decor:  People go crazy for Halloween, especially when it comes to decorating. We have found decorating contests to be a hit with our real estate clients and their followings!
  • Costume Contest:  Best dressed, scariest costume, most original…pick a couple of categories and run a social media contest inviting your following to share their costumes!
