Monday, May 21 , 2018, 12:10 am | Fair 59º Hosts Annual Costume Exchange & Book Swap

It is time for the fifth annual Costume Exchange and Book Swap, to be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Oct. 4 at La Cumbre Plaza. The actual swap will start at 9:15 a.m.

Kids can enjoy fun entertainment, and parents can save money and have fun exchanging last year’s gently used costumes for a new one to wear on Halloween. Parents will find costumes for newborns through size 10.

The event also features a book swap. Parents can bring paperbacks, hardcover books, picture books and chapter books. Books for infants to sixth-graders can be exchanged. Parents who do not have books to exchange can purchase them for $1, and those proceeds will go to a local nonprofit.

Families will have fun with entertainment, art and activities provided by KidzArt, MY GYM, Learningden Preschool & the Putnee Theatre. Families can get an early start by dropping off costumes and books in advance at guest services in La Cumbre Plaza, and they will receive a voucher to use Oct. 4.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
