Once again this year, I've been asked to be one of the judges for what can only be described as the biggest and best costume contest around.  Every year FireKeepers Casino Hotel and Event Center throws a Halloween party to end all Halloween parties.  The first one, 10 years ago, was a complete surprise for my wife Karla and I.  We were astonished at the level of imagination and work that went into just about all of the costumes; and that was the first year!  Since then it's gotten bigger and better.

This Friday night FireKeepers will once again challenge Southern Lower Michigan and Northern Indiana to compete to see who's the best of the best.  Sure there's bragging rights but there's also a huge amount of prizes up for grabs including a boatload of cash and, of course, red hot credits.  But you better bring your "A" game because some of the competitors have been working on their costumes for months.  And, if you're like us and just want to go and check out the great costumes, you will not be disappointed.
