Events planned across town before trick-or-treating

Halloween parties are happening from the Valley to downtown.

The action starts early in the afternoon this Halloween, with festive gatherings taking place in both the Mendenhall Valley and downtown.

Starting at 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum is hosting Halloween Treat at the Museum. This two-hour event includes punch, cookies and a small gift for trick-or-treaters.

From 2-6 p.m. Wednesday throughout downtown, 71 businesses will be open for trick-or-treaters. The businesses will offer candy, activities, gifts and more. The businesses will be marked with orange balloons and “trick-or-treating here” signs. Among these events is Ghouls Night Out at The Canvas at REACH. This free event, running from 2-6 p.m., includes an Oreo race, dancing and a costume contest

From 3-5 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Dimond Park Field House in the Mendenhall Valley, trick-or-treaters can prepare for their big night with bounce houses, slides, goody bags and photos with princesses and heroes. The event, hosted by Juneau Pediatric Dentistry, will also include a costume contest.
