To enter to win, all you have to do is show Tourism Vancouver how you are Halloweening safely. Simply snap a photo of yourself wearing a mask with your Halloween costume and either share it on Instagram with the hashtag #VanMaskerade or by submit it through their website.

The contest prizes are actually pretty enticing — they include tickets for two to Slayland with a restaurant gift card, tickets for two to FlyOver Canada passes with a restaurant gift card, and the grand prize two-night stay at the Coast Coal Harbour for two with a Lost Souls of Gastown Tour for two and a restaurant gift card. 

You have until October 31 to enter for the grand prize, and they will also be randomly drawing weekly winners on October 22 and October 29. To give you some inspiration, here are some photos of people that have creatively incorporated masks into costumes:
