Kids can trick-or-treat with downtown merchants on Halloween

Merchants of three North Olympic Peninsula business communities will host trick-or-treat for children on downtown streets Wednesday.

Here’s a rundown of downtown activities on Halloween:

-- Port Angeles: The Port Angeles Downtown Association will host trick-or-treat for kids accompanied by adults Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Stores bearing an orange sign on the door will offer treats to costumed children.

Simultaneous with the trick-or-treating, the Fifth Floor Haunted House at the downtown Elks Naval Lodge, 131 E. First St., will swing open its doors for a kid-friendly afternoon.

Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for children. Proceeds benefit the Elks National Foundation as well as local Elks scholarships.

--   Sequim: Trick-or-treating for costumed children and children-at-heart — one insurance company invites “kids” with Medicare cards — will be offered by businesses along Washington Street and sidestreets in downtown Sequim.

Candy and goodies will be handed out from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. by participating businesses that show a special sign in their windows.

--   Port Townsend: The Port Townsend Main Street program’s annual Downtown Trick or Treat and Costume Parade starts at 3:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Costumed participants will gather for the parade at Water and Adams streets — near the Bank of America clock — at that time.

The 4 p.m. parade will then march down Water Street toward Polk Street, then kids can trick-or-treat merchants on the way back up Water Street, Washington Street and streets in between.

This event is geared for kindergartners through sixth-graders. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

More information is available by phoning 360-385-7911.
