And, ladies and gentlemen, presenting the

2020 Greater Rochester Marshmallow Peeps Show!

087 Rochester Presbyterian Home The Big Pink Peep Photo Op MGYes, it’s still happening this year, but of course it will look a little different from years past, when it’s been held at the Webster Recreation Center, spread among several rooms.

Like everything else, the 5th annual PEEP Show, had to be postponed last month. But the show’s organizers found a creative work-around. This weekend, 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!
