Halloween is fast approaching! What kind of costume will you wear?

  1. Drop off gently used costumes at the Peoria PlayHouse or the Peoria Riverfront Museum anytime during each museum’s open hours, from October 1st through October 15th. In exchange, you will receive a “Costume Swap Voucher,” which is good for a free costume at the swap!
  2. Bring your voucher to the PlayHouse on October 21st, starting 10am, and choose a “new to you” costume from the costume swap collection.
  3. Accessorize! Does your costume need something else – a hat, a sword, or a prop of some sort? Beginning at 1pm on October 21st, work with PlayHouse staff to create your accessory!
