AKRON — With $1,000 in prize money on the line for best costume, revelers at the 10th annual Halloween Charity Ball took dressing up to a new level.

The evening’s big winner was Adam Rosenberger, of the Portage Lakes area, who is shown at right bottom in his “Cousin Eddie” costume. He won the top prize of $1,000 that was provided by Gavin Scott Salon and Spa.

Another contestant was Bruce Miller, of Ravenna, who is shown at right top in his Incredible Hulk costume. Miller was a finalist.
