The spookiest time of year has finally arrived!

Halloween is now just a few weeks away, but you definitely don't have to wait until then to celebrate! Halloween events have already begun across Eastern Iowa, and that includes lots of haunted attractions. One of them is Circle of Ash in Central City, which we've been giving away tickets to this week. For one of our giveaways, we asked listeners to send us photos of their best Halloween costumes EVER. The results were AWESOME. Here are a few of our favorites:

I've always been a big fan of Halloween, but my love has grown exponentially over the past few years. I would say that I now consider it my favorite holiday (yes, that includes Christmas). Every year, Brain and I do a morning show costume together, and then I will typically do a separate costume for any other Halloween events. Last year, our morning show theme was Robin Williams characters. Brain went as Mrs. Doubtfire and I was Alan from the movie Jumanji. Since I spent so much time making that costume, I needed something easy for my friend's Halloween party. I ended up ordering a White Castle Slider costume. It was AWESOME. Here are some of my favorite costumes over the years:
