The Green Halloween Costume Exchange, scheduled for Oct. 1, has been canceled. The Aquarium planned to collect donated costumes throughout the month of September and invite families to select for free a new costume on Oct. 1.
A lack of donations prompted the cancellation.
Program organizers ask instead that gently used costumes be brought to the Aquarium after Halloween, Nov. 1-30. Those donated costumes will be made available next October.
The Aquarium’s costume exchange is part of a partnership with Green Halloween, a community initiative focused on creating child- and Earth-friendly holiday traditions.
