The city of Kirkland is hosting its third annual Halloween Costume Swap. The community is welcome to donate and trade costumes.
“Kirkland’s Halloween Costume Swap is a fantastic way to reduce waste by reusing or repurposing costumes,” Kellie Stickney, Kirkland’s communications program manager, said.
Stickney said this event encourages the community to reduce what they must buy and reuse items instead of buying new. Around 150 costumes were collected last year. Stickney said they anticipate a much larger response this year.
Instead of buying new Halloween costumes, community members stopped by the Kirkland City Hall (Peter Kirk Room) and donated costumes, masks and accessories. Infant through adult costumes in good condition were accepted. Individuals were welcome to donate more than one costume and they don’t have to donate in order to swap costumes.
The costume swap will continue from 10-11:30 a.m. Sept. 29.
The North Kirkland Community Center is accepting donations as well.
