TABLE JUDGING & COSTUME COMPETITION

THE COMPETITION IS RUTHLESS

Part of what makes Pops on the River such an unforgettable fundraiser is the table & costume contest. Themed tables are judged and then prizes awarded for the following categories:

  • Most Historic
  • Most Outrageous
  • Most Elegant
  • Best Golden Era of Reno Theme
  • & of course, Best of Show!

Remember, Pops on the River is a chance to showcase the creativity of our city! Dress to the theme, or not– but dress to impress! Judging is based on creativity and table participation – not the event theme! Unless, of course, you’re competing in the Best Golden Era of Reno Theme category – then we will definitely be judging you on that (DUH). There are no rules for the table decorating and costume contest, but please be respectful of your neighbors. You may be asked to remove anything offensive from your tables or costumes. Tall decorations need to be taken down prior to the start of the concert so as not to block your neighbors view.
