Judges in the Mattapoisett Police Department’s 2019 Annual Halloween Costume Contest had a tough time naming the winners of this year’s contest due to the number of extraordinary costumes in each age group. Some of the outstanding ones included ‘team’ costumes like Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West and their portable house with accompanying tornado, a three-person Mount Rushmore costume, the Shipyard Park gazebo on wheels, and even a Rapunzel peering through the window of her tower.
The costumes were more creative than ever this year, and why wouldn’t they be, given those high stakes prizes: an electric Razor scooter, a Maverick hoverboard, a Smart TV, and a Google Home Mini, just to name a few!
The winners from each age group are as follows from first place to third:
Pre-school and kindergarten: (Ned and Cedar Maloney), Charlotte Debreau, Nash Couto; First and second grade: (Harper and Molly Osetkowski), Jack Nelson, Ayana Bell; Third and fourth grade: (Nathan Dubuc, Crosby Callahan, Dan Silva, Gavin Estevez, and Charlie Higgins), Maiten Tavares, Zoe Motta; Fifth and sixth grade: (Carly Mello, Alexandra Derrig, and Elizabeth Correia), Katie Jackson, (Olive Huggins and Tessa Ripley); Junior High and High School: Andrew Scott, Zoe Plante, Traeh Carrington; Adult: Jodi Bauer, (Jenny Daruso and Steve Phillips), Pete Lebrun; Scariest costume: Freemin Bauer, (Maiten and Heather Tavares), Colleen Kennefick.
