The streets of downtown Mercer Island will be full of ghosts, goblins, Darth Vaders, princesses, skeletons and other costumed "little people" on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 31.
Around 40 businesses took part in last year's trick-or-treat and the same number or more of businesses in the Town Center and South end businesses (Mercer Village Shopping Center) are expected to take part in the 2012 annual Trick or Treating event.
Participating businesses and employees will be in costume with treats at the ready and will have posters for their doors or windows.
Hoping for a dry afternoon, the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce is organizing the event for a second year in-a-row, along with co-sponsors College Nannies & Tutors, Maloof Family LLC and Sterling Bank.
The event will run from from 3 - 5 p.m.
Young ghosts and goblins are asked to bring a donation for the Mercer Island Food Bank.
