Costume Swap Day


Hosted by Salem Park Recreation & Community Services

Date: Sat. October 13 (National Costume Swap Day)
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m.
Fee: $5 per costume or swap costumes for free!
Place: Salem Senior Center, 5 Broad Street, Salem

Do you have a closet full of costumes that you would never dare be seen in again or some that will never fit your children again? Can’t think of what to be this year? Don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on costumes for the entire family? We have the perfect solution for you...come to the Salem Costume Swap!!

Here’s how it works:  
  • Donate your swap-able costumes at the Salem Senior Center. Empty your closet as a recycle/cleaning house project, you may drop off gently used costumes at the Salem Senior Center starting on September 10th during normal hours.
  • In exchange for each complete, clean, gently worn costume, you will receive 1 swap ticket to claim a new-to-you costume at the 10/13 event.
  • No costume to swap? Still want to shop? No Problem! Stop by the event to purchase any costume for $5. Proceeds will benefit Salem youth programs.
Did you know?

Swapping the costumes of only half of the children who celebrate Halloween would reduce annual landfill waste by 6,250 tons, equivalent to the weight of 2,500 midsize car.
