Peep Week: Town of Occoquan
March 26 @ 9:00 am - April 2 @ 5:00 pm
During the Easter holidays, Occoquan businesses display creative dioramas using marshmallow Peeps! Dioramas are based on current events, community happenings, politics, movies, art, science fiction, and fantasy. Visitors to Occoquan will judge each diorama, vote for their favorites, and enter the drawing to win prizes. This year our Peep Show extends to Peep Week to give everyone a chance to vote.
In conjunction, the town hosts a Community Peep Contest with prizes in each category. The community is invited to participate in Peep Week by designing, creating, and submitting their very own family-friendly Peep dioramas.
