This year, the exhibit kicked off on April 4th and it will be on display until April 20th.

The exhibit features wacky dioramas created with Peeps and prizes will be awarded to non-gallery participants in the show. The top prize of $100 will be judged by Mayor, Pam Triolo and the other 4 prizes will be judged by the public. Each visitor to the gallery will receive 1 token, to be placed in a cup in front of his/her favorite Peeps display.  

In addition to the competition, there will be a Peeps Train circling the gallery. It will also include celebrity Peeps appearances, Peeps fairy tale puns and enjoyable Peeps treats.
