  • In place of their traditional Halloween Costume Contest and Trick-or-Treating, Ancient City Tours will host a Virtual Halloween Costume Contest in 2020. Participants can submit photos of themselves and/or their family in their Halloween costumes throughout the month of October, with the winners being announced on Facebook before 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31, 2020.

    As it turns out, the City of St. Augustine has given Ancient City Tours the go-ahead to hold a real trick-or-treating event as well. This will take place from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 25, 2020. Visit here for details on that event.

    The costume contest fun starts on Facebook. All participants should first go here Ancient City Tour’s Facebook page and “like” the page. To enter the contest, simply post a photo in the comments under the post titled “Virtual Halloween Costume Contest.” The photos must be taken this year and winners may need to show up in costume to claim their prizes.

    Winners will be chosen by the numbers of “Likes” and “Hearts” under their photo. Participants are encouraged to invite friends and family to “vote” by going to the post and clicking “Like” or “Heart” under the appropriate photo.

    Submissions will be accepted through midnight on October 30 and the winners will be announced on Facebook on Friday, October 31, before 5:00 p.m. The winners will be the three photos which received the most likes and hearts. Ancient City Tours will present the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners with prizes.
