A Very Swimways Halloween

The creative Halloween costumes made by our staff

We love Halloween at Swimways! If you follow us on Facebook you may have seen the lengths we go to as a company each year to create our costumes. Our contest this year is next Friday, so stay tuned to our social media channels and we will share the fun with you!

Costumes are kept top secret, and on the days leading up to the contest we witness our colleagues stealthily bringing in overstuffed bags and hauling mysteriously covered objects into the office.

Here’s a look back at some of our favorite Swimways Halloween contest costumes from the last few years. Continue reading
