Halloween events set for Cathlamet
October 20, 2022
The Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce will host several events through the rest of the month.
Business After Hours
On Friday, there will be a Business After Hours event at the Spar in Cathlamet from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
“This is our first one in two or three years,” Chamber Director Monica Budd said. “It’s been a long time and is for anyone looking to make connections, or is curious about businesses in the area. This is a time to bring your business card and mix and mingle, and get to know each other.”
Admission is $5 for members and $15 for non members.
Attendees will get one free drink ticket and appetizers, and organizers will raffle off local items.
RSVP online through the Chamber site at http://www.wahkiakum.us/sparbah.
All businesses in Wahkiakum County, east and west side, are invited to participate in this year’s Scarecrow Contest, sponsored by the Chamber.
Get your scarecrows up and decorated and in front of your business by October 21.
Send Budd a picture of the scarecrow to firstname.lastname@example.org. She will post it on social media and at her office so the public can judge which one they like the best.
The winner will be announced on October 28. The winner receives one free year membership to the Chamber and a little trophy.
The Chamber and Wahkiakum Animal Advocates Group will co-host a dog costume party and pet food drive at Erickson Park on October 29 from 1-3 p.m., under the covered area.
Bring donations of canned dog and cat food, cat litter, or anything pet related to support WAAG.
“We love WAAG. Budd said. “They really need canned food.
There will be a dog costume contest, a relay and dog pie eating contest, a pet psychic and raffle prizes.
“It’s just a lot of fun,” Budd said. “Last year we had 22 dogs. I hope we have more this year.”
Last but not least is Neewollah Day, and trick or treaters are invited to Main Street in Cathlamet to visit participating businesses for candy. The event will take place on Halloween, Monday, October 31 from 4-5:30 p.m.
All participating businesses should get a pumpkin for their door from the Chamber office.
“Some trunk or treating spots are available for people who don’t have a business on Main Street but want to participate,” Budd said.
