Saturday from noon to 2 pm at Whole Foods at Roosevelt Square (1026 NE 64th St) celebrate a green Halloween by participating in National Costume Swap Day.
From now until noon Saturday you can also drop off your gently used and clean costumes. You will receive a ticket which will allow you to return and receive a new (to you) costume.
Here are some tips for organizing the costumes you bring:
- Mark each costume by age and size using masking tape and pen.
- If the costume has multiple pieces, please place in one bag or connect the pieces using safety pins.
There will also be a Scary Food Fair for more pre-Halloween fun.
So, you may ask, “What is the Wallingford connection to this costume swap thing?”
This event is also the first outreach event publicizing the new Think Green Recycling Challenge – yes, the Challenge is back! This year the neighborhood that reduces its garbage tonnage the most as compared to last year will receive $40,000 for a non-profit plus $10,000 will be awarded to communities that take part in the most Recycling Challenge outreach activities.
More details on this year’s Think Green Recycling Challenge coming soon.
