You just have to look in the grocery stores at all the Halloween candy out, to know that Halloween is fast approaching. Now's the time when younger children and those adults "young at heart" start planning their Halloween costumes and what they're "going to be" for Halloween!

But let's face it, Halloween costumes are expensive, like everything else! Most children don't want to wear the same costume they wore last year. To that extent, and to encourage recycling and reusing, the Mount Desert YMCA is bringing back its Halloween Costume Swap!

You are encouraged to drop off any gently used Halloween costumes at the MDI YMCA at 21 Park Street in Bar Harbor now through October 15th. You'll receive a token for a new-to-you costume at the swap. Then, between October 15th and October 27th, you can cash in that token and take home a different costume for this year's trick-or-treating.

If you don't have a costume to donate, you can still take advantage of the swap, as costumes will be just a dollar for those without a token.

And be sure to circle Friday October 27th on your calendar, as that's when the MDI YMCA will be hosting its annual Trunk or Treat event.
