And some residents have relied on a community supply of costumes known as the Costume Room. It’s a cooperative of sorts that was housed near Lee’s Clothing in downtown Petersburg.
But the fate of the costumes is now up in the air as the storage location is changing.
Heidi Lee has been a long-time volunteer and advocate of the Costume Room. She spoke with KFSK’s Angela Denning about the history of the place and what its future may hold.
