So Vashon town center closed down from traffic and most of the businesses open their doors and welcome trick or treaters. From the senior center to the thriftway grocery store most everyplace was open!
It was really fun! People of ALL ages (seriously ALL) were dressed up. I personally loved a Hula Zombie Dad and one of the businesses has people "haunting it." In general, it was really easy to handle our three year old despite the crowd of High Schoolers, Older kids, adults etc.
All in all, we will go back next year- without a doubt. Hey, we even saw someone we knew so that was nice/cool.
Oh, I forgot, the Vashon Island Roasterie had hundreds of carved and lit pumpkins outside it was super super cool! We ALL loved it!
We didn't participate in this, but our neighborhood also had trick-or-treating. We were pretty much done coaching our three year old through, "say trick-or treat," "Say thank you." etc. But it's cool that the houses around our neck of the woods have a tradition too.
