From October 1 through October 15 the Santa Monica Main Public Library as well as each branch library will be collecting used Halloween Costumes for the City’s Annual Costume Swap. The Costume Swap is a way to exchange last year’s costume for another costume, for nothing more than a trip to your local library. A coupon will be given to those that drop off a costume. Coupons will be redeemable at the Virginia Avenue Park Fall Festival.
On Saturday, October 17 the City will host the Virginia Avenue Park Fall Festival from 3 – 7 p.m. Bring the costume swap coupon to event to begin shopping for a “new” used costume. Just look for the Resource Recovery and Recycling Division booth. This event is free. In addition to the Costume Swap, the festival will include a Repair Caf√©, Storytelling, Hay Bale Maze, Pumpkin Carving, Country Dancing Lessons, Juggling and more.
