Are you ready for Halloween Trick-or-Treat Night in downtown Edmonds? It’s happening from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, and it’s free. The festivities, sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, include plenty of treats courtesy of Edmonds merchants and a costume contest for people and pets. For information, call 425-776-6711.

Donations of new socks and underwear are also being accepted next to the downtown fountain Halloween evening for Clothes for Kids, which provides wardrobes for local schoolchildren in need.

An estimated 5,000 spidermen, spooks, princesses, pumpkinheads, and their parents typically trek around town that evening to gather treats, and this year, there will be a special guest: Queen Elsa, the character from the movie “Frozen.” Just visit the Heart of Edmonds Project booth in front of the former KinderBritches store (soon to be reopening as Belly & Co.). The first 250 trick or treaters will have their choice of a star wand or special candy ice stick and an autograph by Queen Elsa. Pictures will be welcome.

Donations to The Heart of Edmonds will help raise needed funds to purchase automated external defibrillators and provide CPR and AED training for all schools in the Edmonds School District. The organization was founded by the parents of Meadowdale High School student Matthew Truax, who died in September 2013 of an undiagnosed heart condition.

Visit the Heart of Edmonds website to learn how to become a student ambassador, participate in their events or provide an auction item and help make the Edmonds School District and surrounding communities – Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood — Heart Safe.

In addition, be sure to bring the family to the Edmonds Museum on Halloween for a “friendly” haunted house, from 4-7 p.m., on the museum’s lower level, 118 5th Ave. N. Admission is $1.
