Got your kids’ costumes figured out yet? Or your own?
You only have until tonight (Oct. 31) to get it together, because it’s Halloween, and tricking and treating will be going on all over the valley.
Twisp’s Burgar Street, ground zero for hundreds of trick-or-treaters who come to see the many extravagantly decorated homes (and fill their sacks), will once again be closed to vehicle traffic from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., to make the evening safer for everyone.
In Mazama, kids and parents will gather at the Mazama Store at 4:45 p.m. for a group foray into the surrounding area. When they return, they’ll find goodies ready for them at the store.
“Trunk-or-treat” opportunities will be at two locations: Community Covenant Church, on Highway 20 north of Twisp, from 5-6:30 p.m.; and on Riverside Avenue in Winthrop beginning at 5 p.m., sponsored by Methow Valley United Methodist Church.
Cascade Bible Church, on Highway 20 in Twisp, is hosting a free fall carnival with a hot dog and chili dinner, games and prizes, from 6 – 8 p.m. [Editor’s note: This was current when we published this week’s Methow Valley News, but the reader board outside the church this morning (Oct. 31) says there will be no fall carnival]
For something of a more adult nature, Methow Valley Theater is hosting a Halloween dance party at the Methow Valley Community Center in Twisp at 8 p.m. Cost is $10; 21 and older only.
And Twisp River Pub’s annual Halloween party features the Chicago Afrobeat Project beginning at 9 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes. Cost is $10 in advance; $12 at the door.
