The WMMQ Halloween Costume Contest for Dogs returned to Celebration! Cinema on Edgewood Blvd in Lansing this past Friday morning, where our listeners dressed up their beloved beasts in a fantastic display of creativity.

Our esteemed panel of judges of Jeff Johnson, Owner, Bake & Cakes (have you tried their new donuts yet?!?), friend of the show Carmen Hall and Michigan State University Corporate Exec Chef Kurt Kwiatkowski determined the winners.

First prize went to Ann Williams and Splash for "Dinner is Served". They collected $600 in Celebration! Cinema gift cards, $300 from Soldan's Pet Supplies and a $25 Pink Shear Spa certificate.
