To provide a safe area for trick or treating, Harborview Drive will be closed from 2:00pm – 6pm from Soundview Drive to Rosedale Street, and Pioneer Way will be closed from Harborview Drive to Tarabochia Street.
“Many of the downtown waterfront businesses, including Finholm, will be open and have candy available for trick or treaters,” according to Mary DesMarais, Executive Director of the Alliance. “Their generosity towards our local community is something very special, especially when you consider they’ve been doing this for so many years.”
Numerous activities will be taking place in the area to go along with all the trick or treating:
- At the Skansie House, Harbor WildWatch will be offering a “Spooky Skulls Tour”
- Nearby, kids will find Gig Harbor Fire and Medic One on Harborview for a close-up look and an opportunity to meet emergency responders!
- The Gig Harbor Church of the Nazarene will offer their “Trunk or Treat and Carnival” event.
