In an attempt to keep our community but still have some Halloween fun during this frightful season, Destination Oneonta is holding a Virtual Costume Contest. Normally, during the Oneonta Halloween parade, there is a costume contest. Since the parade has been cancelled this year over concerns of spreading the coronavirus, Destination Oneonta has come to the rescue to save this fun tradition and give people a chance to show off their creative costumes.
