Neighborhood favorite DUMBOween returns with fun, seasonal photo ops, and a costume contest that allows for a safe Halloween celebration. Hit the photo haunts on Washington Street (at Water) and Main Street (at Plymouth) to snap a picture-perfect shot for the virtual costume contest.

No reservations necessary, but masks are required. Please keep six feet of distance from others while enjoying this experience.

The nabe's annual costume contest, perennially judged by Jim Munson, founder of Brooklyn Roasting Company, is going virtual this year.

1. Take a photo of your pandemic pod in costume—photo must be taken in Dumbo.

2. Post that photo to Instagram and tag @dumbobrooklyn and #dumboween2020. Or, if you prefer, you can email it to dumbo@dumbonyc.org.

3. Submit your photo by 6pm on Halloween for a chance to win!

All entries are posted to DumboBrooklyn's Instagram stories, so please note entry gives the OK to post your image publicly on stories for 24 hours.

The grand prize is an original painting by CAM. Four additional prizes include $50 treats to Brooklyn Roasting Company, One Girl Cookies, Jacques Torres, and Oddfellows.
