I received an exciting email the other day from the organizers of the Greater Rochester PEEP Show.

The 5th annual PEEP Show, originally scheduled for March 31, had to be tabled like everything else in the last month. But the show’s organizers have found a creative work-around.

On May 9 and 10, the Greater Rochester Marshmallow PEEPS Art Show, sponsored by the Webster Community Chest, will go virtual.

Here’s more information direct from the press release:

Although the number of entries has been reduced due to the pandemic, we still have

plenty for folks to look at and many of the other features of the live show will be recreated on-line. 

Our display makers have sent in photographs showing their art work in detail, and many have even sent short movies of their displays. There will be plenty of fun things to look at. Visitors need only to come to www.rochesterpeepshow.com to enjoy the fun.

In addition to all the displays, visitors can see past years displays, visit our craft vendors, make donations to get raffle tickets for wonderful prizes, see performances by our entertainers, learn about each of the sixteen local nonprofit agencies that benefit from donations and about the businesses that have sponsored this show.

The “make donations” part is particularly important if you stop by. This event has always been a big fundraiser for the Webster Community Chest, an organization which is needed even more during these difficult times to help support our neighbors in need.

So check out the show this May 9 and 10. Kids, make it a virtual Mother’s Day “field trip” for your mom!

P.S. There’s still time to submit an entry, so reserve a spot for your own creation. For more information and inspiration, visit rochesterpeepshow.com, follow the Webster Community Chest on Facebook or email peepshow@frontier.com.
