Halloween to be celebrated on Peninsula

Events planned in Port Townsend, Sequim, Port Angeles, Joyce and Forks

Halloween events are planned today through Sunday on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Downtown trick-or-treating has been canceled this year in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend, although in Port Angeles, individual businesses may hold their own private events.

Only Forks among the incorporated cities on the Peninsula will have organized downtown trick-or-treating. It will be overseen by the Forks Chamber of Commerce and the West End Business & Professional Association.

Most Forks businesses will offer treats to children in costume all day during business hours Sunday.

Some will offer trick-or-treating only from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. that day. They are South North, Circle K, Forks Avenue Real Estate, Forever Twilight in Forks Collection, Blakeslee’s Bar & Grill, Unleashed Graphic/UGI, Olympic Artforge and Laundry 101.

Chinook Pharmacy plans to offer trick-or-treating Saturday because it is generally closed Sunday, according to Christi Baron, chamber board president and Forks Forum editor.

Health protocols will be followed, said Lissy Andros, Forks Chamber of Commerce executive director, in an email.

Chamber personnel will hand out candy at both the Visitor Information Center, at 1411 S. Forks Ave., and downtown at the Forever Twilight in Forks Collection in the Rainforest Arts Center alcove, at 11 N. Forks Ave., using tongs so that candy is handed out without touching, she said.
