Seventh Annual Montana Parent Costume Swap October 14, 2017

There is always a sense of excitement in the air when October rolls around. Costumes are proudly displayed in stores, candy fills the grocery aisles and kids seem to talk endlessly about what (or who) they are going to be for Halloween. But for parents, thoughts of too much candy and expensive costumes can be a burden. This year, why not take the thrill of Halloween into your own hands? Find a FREE costume at the Seventh Annual Montana Parent Costume Swap at the Gallatin Valley Mall on October 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (located near the food court, outside of Joanne’s). 

For every donation of a clean, gently used children’s Halloween costume, you are eligible to exchange it for a new (to you) costume. We encourage donations of adult and teenage costumes as our inventory is low for that demographic. Please donate good quality, complete costumes. We cannot accept items that would not be taken by other families. 

To donate or participate, bring your costumes to the Gallatin Valley Mall office any time during business hours prior to the event or the day of the event. Even if you don’t plan to exchange, costume donations are welcome. Depending on inventory, costumes will be provided to anyone who cannot afford one. 

This free event is presented to you by Montana Parent, the Gallatin Valley Mall and Giggles Toys and More.
