With fall starting to show in the air on on the trees it is time to announce that we are doing Nerd-O-Ween 2.0. The 2.0 version of Nerd-O-Ween will have many of the same features as last year, with a few minor upgrades. We are going to have another crazy costume contest with the nerdiest costumes you will find in Chicago.
Prizes will be given for the:
- Best Overall Costume
- Silliest Costume
- Most Accurate Costume
- Nerdiest Costume
- Most Original Costume
Also making a return appearance will be the Nerd O’ Lanterns. To get into the event for free carve something nerdy into a pumpkin and bring it to the event. Prizes will also be given to the top two pumpkins.
