A trio of local businesses are partnering with Macaroni Kid to celebrate National Costume Swap Day on Oct. 12.
Families are encouraged to bring gently used children’s costumes to Gilman Village businesses Small Threads for Kids or CleanScapes Store between now and Oct. 11.
In exchange, families will receive a swap ticket to be used from 8-10 a.m. Oct. 12 at Small Threads for Kids. There, children can peruse the selection for a different costume.

Started in April 2009, Macaroni Kid provides families in the Snoqualmie Valley, Issaquah and Sammamish areas a comprehensive listing of family-friendly events and activities to entertain, stimulate and exhaust their kids, according to a press release from Macaroni Kid.
Four years ago, Diana Reul-Shapiro, of Snoqualmie, was looking for activities to keep her kids busy when she had the idea to assist local parents doing the same thing. Today, another mom, Dana Verhoff, of Fall City, helps her.
