Halloween processional will cause traffic delays on the Old Bridge and Woodin Avenue
LAKE CHELAN, WA (October 29, 2020) This year, the Historic Downtown Chelan Association (HDCA) invites you to drive through a ghostly downtown Chelan to receive Halloween goody bags on Saturday, October 31 from 5 – 7 p.m.
Drivers who do not plan to participate in the event should expect traffic delays on the Old Bridge and Woodin Avenue. It is recommended that drivers avoid the area during the event hours if possible. Parking will be restricted on Woodin Ave between Columbia and Sanders streets starting at 4 p.m. in preparation for the event.
If you plan to participate in the drive-thru trick-or-treat event, vehicles will stage in the high school parking lot. Enter the parking lot from S Farnham St and await instructions from volunteers. See map for details.
We look forward to seeing all of you ghouls, ghosts and goblins this Saturday in historic downtown Chelan!
