Halloween on Vashon just got more interesting.
Thanks to UMO, Vashon Allied Arts, 4Culture and the Vashon Chamber of Commerce, Islanders will be able to view or participate in a new Day of the Dead Skeleton Parade.
The event will take place from 6 to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 31, during the annual Chamber-sponsored uptown Trick or Treat event.
An all-ages costume-making event will take place at the “O” space located at 18870 103rd Ave. S.W. from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25.
The parade event will be centered around a metal cart created by Island artist Ela Lamblin. Last-minute participants are welcome to join. UMO Ensemble and La Banda Gozona, an authentic Oaxacan band, will play in the streets.
