An online Zoom party will also be held during the concert, which includes a Best in Costume competition.  Participants can come in their favorite costumes, and get a chance to win awesome prizes. Five (5) Best in Costume awardees from the online party will be selected. Participants are required to register early since the Zoom party slots are limited.
