Remember that our neighborhood’s annual trick-or-treating in the business district is set for 12-3 p.m. this Saturday at businesses all along Phinney and Greenwood avenues, plus some on 85th Street. Look for the Hunger Goblin’ Trick or Treat posters in the windows of participating businesses.
Anyone in costume can trick-or-treat, but you can also buy a $2 sticker or donate a can of food for the food bank at various donation stations along Greenwood-Phinney avenues, or at Umpqua Bank, 7120 Greenwood Ave. N., to get a special Hunger Goblin’ sticker.
