Trick or Treat

Halloween Hangar Party

Here’s what you can look forward to: making whirly-gigs and watching them dance in the vertical wind tunnel, building a glider or balloon-powered car, playing games for candy and favors, playing the remote control plane program on the large-screen TV, and experiencing the fun of flying in the flight simulator lab. (You can’t get THAT while trick-or-treating in your neighborhood!)

All kids will receive a candy bag, while supplies last. Young people ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Pearson Field Education Center is located at 201A E. Reserve St. in Vancouver, near Fort Vancouver. The Pearson Hanger will also be open as usual for the Open Saturday program. For more details, call 360-992-1815.

Bootacular Trick-or-Treating at Vancouver Mall

What’s one of the best places to be on Halloween night in Vancouver? The Vancouver Mall, of course! Every year, the mall hosts a “Bootacular” Halloween party with safe, indoor trick-or-treating for kids (and fun for grown-ups, too!). Bring your little Frankensteins and baby boos to the Vancouver Mall between 5 and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31, for more candy than you can shake a pitchfork at.

Trick-or-treating is encouraged for kids up to age 12. Not every store is participating in the trick-or-treating event, but you’ll know which ones are getting in the “spirit” of the season by looking for the Bootacular Trick-or-Treat sign at the door, or on the kiosk. After everyone has filled his or her (or its?) bags with goodies, there will be Halloween-themed games and crafts on lower level of the Mall’s H&M Court.

The Vancouver Mall is located at 8700 N.E. Vancouver Mall Drive. Candy is available while supplies last. For more information, visit www.shopvancouvermall.com.

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.

Halloween Fun Fest

Battle Ground’s 35th annual Halloween Fun Fest & Fright Night will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on the evening of Halloween, Monday, Oct. 31. There will be Safe Trick-or-Treating on Trick or Treat Street for your little monsters, a scarecrow contest, a coloring contest for ages two through 12, and a costume contest for kids and dogs. Prizes will be awarded to kids with the most creative costumes in two age groups: ages 10 and under and ages 11 and up, plus an award for the most creative dog costume (…so get ready for cute overload). The costume contest will take place at 5 p.m. at the Battle Ground Chamber of Commerce, located at 317 E. Main Street.

Safe Trick-or-Treating will be held all along Main Street, east of SR503. Look for the stores with the jack o’lantern in the window to know where to get candy! Instead of trick-or-treating, you could go Trunk-or-Treating: decorate your car, come in costume, and hand out candy from your trunk; call 360-687-1510 to get your assigned parking spot. Ribbons will be awarded to the best-decorated car. There will also be a Fright Night party at the Battle Ground Community Center with games, prizes, and more tricks and treats.
