This year, the Historic Downtown Chelan Association (HDCA) invites you to drive through a ghostly downtown Chelan to receive Halloween goody bags on Sunday, October 31
from 5 – 7 p.m.

Drive-thru Trick-or-Treat Route

Vehicles will stage in the high school parking lot and proceed to Woodin Avenue to cross the old bridge and enter downtown. Spooky decor and haunted characters await as you drive through historic downtown. You will have the opportunity to enter the “Car-stume” Contest if you wish, and then will receive your Trick-or- Treat goody bags at the end of the processional.
