Each year, we announce daily costume themes for those who choose to join in.
2023 Costume Themes
A word about our costume themes: during this season of costumes and dress-up, we want to encourage all to have fun with our costume themes. However we ask that you are sensitive to how some costumes may affect others, specifically our Indigenous friends. We ask that you refrain from wearing headdresses or any costume that may sexualize or demean Indigenous People. There is no place for discomfort amongst our community members, so if in doubt, err on the side of caution. Thanks for your cooperation.
