For the ninth year, Mercer Island businesses in the Town Center and South Mercer Shopping Center are inviting ghosts, goblins, firefighters, princesses, devils, zombies and other characters to trick or treat at their businesses.

The event, organized by the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce, will be from 3-5:30 p.m. on Oct. 31. The list of merchants is growing, and the chamber expects about 60 participants, according to Executive Director Laurie Givan.

Participating business will have a poster of a Jack O’ Lantern in their window. There will be a list of candy stops available on the Chamber of Commerce website and at the businesses. Don’t forget to stop at Aljoya and see their haunted library.

Bring a non-perishable food item for the Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Food Pantry. Items can be dropped off at Banner Bank, the Chamber office, C Michele, Au Courant and MI Martial Arts.

For more information or to sign up, contact the chamber at 206-232- 3404 or info@mercerislandchamberofcommerce.org.
