The annual trick-or-treat event on Queen Anne Ave N is on Halloween this year – this Wednesday from 3-6pm. The spooky fun takes place between McGraw and Galer, with A&J Meats and the Marqueen Garage acting as the bookend merchants for the event. Merchants up and down Queen Anne Ave will be participating (many in costume!) and handing out goodies to trick-or-treaters.
In years past, the event has drawn over 2,000 trick-or-treaters, and the sidewalks have been jam-packed with ghouls, goblins, princesses, and pirates. To keep the event as safe as possible, there will be off-duty police officers directing traffic, and the merchants have requested that people avoid driving on Queen Anne Ave N during the event.
Take a look at these pictures from last year, and you’ll see why it’s important to keep your car off the main drag and instead walk around and have fun!
