It’s that time of year again! Bring your ghosts and goblins to trick or treat in Multnomah Village this Friday. The fun starts at Starbucks, winds around the Village–through Village Frame & Gallery, of course–and finishes up at Dr. Jensen’s office.  Along the way, there are lots of fun things to do and 1000s of trick-or-treaters in costume. This has become a major annual event in our neighborhood, so we hope to see you there this year!

Will we recognize you? What are you dressing up as this year? Tell us in the comments section or on our Facebook page. Better yet, post a picture of you in your costume!

Live music and interactive booths will keep the fun going until 4 pm. After months of construction, this year’s “The Village Goes Green” theme will celebrate Multnomah Village’s new “green street” run-off and pollution reduction facilities. Attendees should be sure to stop by the energy fair, which will showcase ways to go green at home and at work.

Organized by the Multnomah Village Business Association with the help of community sponsors, this annual street fair takes place on Capitol Highway between SW 33rd and SW 39th –Multnomah Village’s main street. It’s our 105th anniversary year, so, drive, walk, bike or bus on over to enjoy a full day of fun for the whole family. Parking is available on the street as well as at the Multnomah Art Center.
