Save the Planet and Your Budget This Halloween

LINCROFT — With Halloween approaching, it’s time to start thinking of costumes for you, your family, and even your pets. This year, upcycle your gently used adults’, kids’, and even pet costumes for a spooktakular new-to-you ensemble during the Monmouth County Park System’s Eek-O-Fabulous Costume Swap. 

Costume drop-offs will be accepted Monday-Friday, October 6-10 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Saturday, October 11 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. For each costume you bring you will receive a token entitling you to a “new” costume on the day of the swap. Costume drop-offs can be done at the following locations:

  • Dorbrook Recreation Area Visitor Center, Colts Neck;
  • Fort Monmouth Recreation Center, Tinton Falls;
  • Huber Woods Environmental Center, Middletown;
  • Manasquan Reservoir Environmental Center, Howell; and
  • Thompson Park Visitor Center, Lincroft.

“New” costumes can then be found during the swap on Sunday, October 12 from 12-3 p.m. at the Thompson Park Visitor Center, Lincroft. For additional information on the event, please call 848-456-4278, ext. 4#.
