Wonderama, the award-winning family series known for showcasing kids and their amazing talents, delivered a truckload of candy to the O’Sullivan kids – Sadie, 9, Aiden, 9, Kenley, 7, and Maybre, 5 – the grand prize winners of its Wonderama Wonder-een Costume Contest. Arriving at the O’Sullivan family’s front door the day before Halloween, Wonderama unloaded a dump truck carrying 1,200 pounds of candy provided by Torie & Howard – a spook-tacular treat for the O’Sullivan children to share with friends and family.
The O’Sullivan kids were awarded the contest’s grand prize for their playful and creative costumes (images available at the link below). In addition to the enormous truck full of candy, the family was featured on the Wonderama Friday Night “Haunted” House Party where they were interviewed by host David Osmond.
“We were so shocked and excited to win! You wouldn’t believe how much 1,200 pounds of candy really is. This definitely made up for not being able to trick-or-treat this year, but mom made us promise to share with everyone we know,” said Aiden O’Sullivan, age 9 who won the contest with her siblings.
In addition to the Wonderama Wonder-een Costume Contest grand prize, winners were chosen in four additional categories: Gessica Cantatore from Bridgewater, New Jersey for scariest costume; Caleb Kandel from Somers, New York for funniest costume; Zoey Gilbert from Salt Lake City, Utah for most creative costume; Everett & Emerson Dorr from Westminster, Colorado for cutest costume. Each of the category winners will receive an exclusive Halloween-themed Wondercrate full of candy and fun for the whole family. Images are available at the link below.
Presented by the Wonderama Friday Night “Haunted” House Party, the Wonder-een Halloween Costume Contest ran through October 27th. To enter, families posted their best Halloween costume photo to Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #Wonderama2020 and tagging @WonderamaTV. All entries were judged on attention to detail, creativity and originality, theme execution, and overall presentation. Sadie, Aiden, Kenley, and Maybre O’Sullivan took home the grand prize for their cute and spooky costumes.
“With everything going on in the world, it’s important that we are still creating opportunities for kids to just be kids and have fun,” said Charles Armstrong, CEO of Armstrong Interactive, Inc. and Wonderama Entertainment Holdings. “Halloween may look very different for everyone this year but we know it’s still all about the candy so Wonderama found a way to go just a little bit over the top for one family, and maybe their whole neighborhood, to make sure this is a Halloween they‘ll never forget - for a good reason!”
