Patients and families enjoyed the return of a longtime hospital event — the annual Halloween Costume Shop that gives away costumes and accessories for patients of all ages (baby to adult) at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
The event returned after a 4-year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The giveaways were donated to the hospital by sponsors Amazon, Spirit of Halloween and Jakks Pacific/Disguise, Inc.
Hospital and clinic staff dressed the part to help patients celebrate Halloween, while patients had their pick of costumes from the Halloween Costume Shop held in the performance area of the hospital.
