Eat, drink and be scary: Downtown trick-or-treat events set Wednesday

Merchants of the North Olympic Peninsula's business communities will get in the spirits of the Halloween season by hosting 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.

“Ghosts and goblins gallivant to gather great gobs of glorious goodies!,” the downtown association alliterates on it website, www.portangelesdowntown.com.

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 firm 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.
