Halloween in south Lewis County
By Lynnette Hoffman
Halloween is this coming weekend and there is a lot in store for the goblins and ghouls in south Lewis County. Winlock, Toledo and Napavine are all having Trunk-or-Treats, it means you decorate the trunk not put someone in there. If they are dressed up, you can throw them in the trunk at the event only, it's not recommended to drive them around in the trunk. Winlock is also having fun and games at the community building and Napavine will have their trunk-or-treat at Fire District 5 in Napavine. There is a lot in store for the weekend, here are the groups that supplied information to the Lewis County News. All events take place on Halloween evening.
Napavine: Napavine will be having a trunk-or-treat at the fire station. It begins Sunday, October 31 at 6:00 p.m. and runs until 8:00 p.m. It's sponsored by Napavine Police Department and Napavine City Hall along with LC Fire District and Let's Play Something. If it's at a fire station, you know it's going to be fun. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Toledo: Toledo First Baptist Church is having a "Hero's Unmasked Harvest Festival" starting at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday and lasting until 5:00 p.m. The event will include games and trunk-and-treat festivities.
Vader: Vader Assembly of God Church will be hosting a Fall Family Festival on Sunday, October 31 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall (right across from Werden Park). There will be food, games and candy. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please, NO gory costumes as this is a family event.
Winlock Trunk-or-Treat: This great event will happen at the Plaza (next to the tracks) like last year. Last year the Plaza was full of trunks or treaters and everyone dressed up. They did such a fabulous job last year that this year will be spectacular.
Falloween Festival: This event is at the Winlock Community Building. They will have a haunted house, fun games and prizes as well as concessions. Concessions will be available for a small price.
Business Trick-or-Treat in Winlock: Some will be handing out candy on Halloween and others will do it on Friday. School dress up day is Thursday, I have not been told if any businesses will be doing Trick-or-Treat on Thursday.
All of these events are going to be fun. It's going to be so fun seeing every Trunk-or-Treat. We hope you have the time to visit your local Trunk-or-Treat or come to another city nearby. Lots of candy will be given so make sure to bring your Halloween pumpkins to fill up.
