The costume contest registration will be from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m., with the contest beginning at 5:30 p.m., and will take place in the South Plains Mall Grand Court. Participants can register in one of four age categories. There will be first, second and third place winners in all four age categories.

Families are also encouraged to help South Plains Mall "scare away hunger." Bring a donation of canned goods or other non-perishable items to be donated to South Plains Food Bank, and children can choose from a grab-bag of prizes.

With more than 150 stores, services and restaurants and anchored by Dillard's, JC Penney, Mervyn's, Sears and Bealls, South Plains Mall is located at South Loop 289 and Slide Road in southwest Lubbock.
