In a band full of pranksters, Halloween has always been a big day on the Phish calendar. In 1994, Phish upped the ante by performing a musical costume. In the years before that, however, the highlight of many Halloween shows was the costume contest. And, make no mistake: the band took these contests seriously. As Trey remarked on 10/31/91, everyone who was voted down “has to take a stage dive… even you, Jesus.” Past contest winners include Harry Hood (10/29/88), Bergen County Woman Cop & Captain Bong Hit (10/31/91) and the “Mound” candy bar (10/31/94).

Submit notes/corrections is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
