Boo Bash

Boo Bash Trick-or-Treat in downtown Camas

Boo Bash! Trick or Treat is a Halloween tradition in downtown Camas, held from 3 to 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before Halloween every year. This year, Boo Bash will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 25, and you’re invited to add your “Boo!” to Camas’ bash. Come in costume but be prepared for the whatever the weather might do (rain is always a possibility) and bring jumbo-sized buckets, pillowcases, or maybe a wheelbarrow to hold all the candy you’ll get. Pretty much every single store in downtown Camas will be open and handing out candy and Halloween-themed goodies to the crowds who are expected to throng the streets, forming a candy-fueled conga line up and down N.E. Fourth Ave. About 3,000 people came last year, and this year is expected to be another record turn-out!

Fourth Ave. from Adams to Franklin and side streets from Third to Fifth will be closed for the event to ensure children’s safety. Please no bikes, skateboards, or scooters. Parents, please provide supervision when crossing streets! We want our little ghosts and goblins, superheroes and storybook characters, pirates and princesses to stay safe.

After you’re done with your boo-bashing, stick around and have a warming coffee or hot cocoa at Caffe Piccolo, grab a bite to eat at Mill City Brew Works, Nuestra Mesa, or The Sushi Joint 2. If you need some extra carbs to go with your sugar, sample the Halloween treats at Cake Happy. Click here for a walking map of downtown Camas to help you plan your visit.

Spooky Week: Jack O’Lanterns & Ghost Stories

Things are getting spoooooooky at the Camas Public Library as Halloween draws closer. Next week, in fact, is officially Spooky Week at the Camas Library, with a pumpkin carving contest, ghost stories for grown-ups and kids, and of course the annual Boo Bash on Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Judging for the library’s pumpkin carving contest will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 4 p.m. Bring your carved pumpkin to the library to compete with other pumpkin-carvers for prizes. Awards will be presented after the judging. You can bring your pumpkin at any time before 4 p.m. on the day of the contest. Awards will be presented after judging. Award categories include Most Creative, Scariest and Funniest.

Come back to the library on Friday, Oct. 28, for “Listening in the Dark,” an annual event which celebrates the art of the spooky story. Not-Too-Scary Stories for children starts at 7 p.m., and Hair-Raising Tales for adults begins at 8 p.m. Both storytelling events will be held in the Totem Pole Room with stories read by Dan Sisco and Camas Library staff.

Boo Bash is an annual Halloween event organized by the Downtown Camas Association where downtown merchants open their doors to all the kids and families in the community and give out free candy. The library is one of the stops on the Boo Bash route. Come in costume and get a little daylight trick-or-treating done (and don’t worry, you’ll always get a treat). Boo Bash is from 3 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26. For more details, visit downtowncamas.org.

New this year: a people-and-pets photo booth to raise funds ($5 suggested donation per photo) for a local Eagle Scout project to remodel and update the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society. If you don’t have a costume for Fluffy or Fido, pet costumes and Halloween-themed toys will be for sale on site. But wait, there’s more—a local dance troupe will perform Thriller at 2:45 p.m. at the intersection of 4th Ave. and Cedar, and then they’ll be another performance later on when the kids can join and dance along!
