Walker's Point is a neighborhood that draw creative and fun people from all over the city, so it's no surprise their Halloween contest showcases some extraordinary get-ups.

The grand event takes place early this year – Saturday, Oct. 19 (as in THIS Saturday) – and runs from 6 p.m. to bar time throughout Walker's Point. Free shuttles will also run all night long, transporting people from bar to bar.

To enter the contest, register at Walker's Pint, 818 S. 2nd St., between 6 and 9 p.m. and then creep around the neighborhood to the 10 participating bars. The winners will be announced at Walker's Pint and more than $3,000 will be awarded in cash and prizes.

"We’re a very diverse group of bars that work together to throw awesome events year round," says Walker's Pint owner, Bet-z Boenning. "After every event we take the feedback from previous years and incorporate it into the next event to make it even better."

OnMilwaukee is a sponsor of this event and personally I'm stoked to judge the contest again – even though it's challenging to pick winners. (So stop by and bribe me with candy and costume compliments.) Here are some shots of entrants from years past. See what I mean?
