It’s less than two weeks until Halloween, are you ready?
If you live on one of the main streets running through central Snoqualmie Ridge (Douglas, Ridge, Fairway, Curtis), this is your warning… especially if you are new to the area: You may think you bought enough candy, but chances are you could be short.
Halloween is just crazy in this area of Snoqualmie. Last year I walked by a home on Douglas, a home that had just recently sold. By 7:30PM there was a handmade sign (back of a brown grocery bag) taped to the door – “OUT OF CANDY. SORRY.”
There are LOTS of Halloween activities happening in the coming days. If your group’s Halloween fun isn’t listed, please feel free to leave a comment below with all the details.
