Congratulations to our Hallowen Jack-O-Lantern and Costume Contest Winners! Vashon, thank you! Watching those photos come in of your costumes and your craftwork was uplifting to say the least.

By Rachel Waldron | October 16, 2020

Halloween costume and Pumpkin Carving Contest!! THE DETAILS Submit a photo of your Halloween costumes and pumpkin carving creations! Contest is open to all ages of residents, businesses owners, employees, students and other related Vashon community members. All submissions must be suitable for public viewing. Any submissions deemed objectionable due to profanity, nudity, drug use…

Engage in safe distanced, at-home activities

  • Visit a local farm and pumpkin patch! There’s no need to go off-island, we have some of the best farms and patches around!
  • Carve those pumpkins and share your jack-o-lantern photos with The Chamber to be entered into our virtual pumpkin carving contest!
  • Participate in the Chamber of Commerce Costume contest!
  • Have a spooky movie night with your pod-squad or quarantine household! Don’t forget to load up on lots of local treats, goodies, and specialty beverages (for the adults)!
  • How about a backyard candy scavenger hunt?! Just don’t let those stray candy bars melt in the rain.


Practice social distancing

  • If you do plan to go out, wear a mask, and maintain a minimum 6-foot distance between others. Gathering in groups of 5 or more is implicitly restricted as per WA state guidelines for counties in Phase 2 and considered a high-risk activity.
  • Consider wearing Halloween costumes during your regular weekend errands! This is Vashon after all, let’s continue to “keep it weird” by picking up our prescriptions, pet food, and paint-supplies all while dressed as superheroes, witches, or firefighters.


Wear your mask!

  • Halloween masks are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, so consider an option that will allow you to wear your mask comfortably while in costume.

  • Vashon’s Unofficial Mayor’s will be the panel of judges who will decide the winners



The King County Department of Health and the CDC consider trick-or-treating to be a high-risk activity. If you choose to distribute candy to any person that is not a member of your quarantine household, please practice the following recommendations:

  • Continue to wash your hands between each interaction, and keep hand sanitizer, containing at least 60% alcohol, on hand as a back-up.
  • All trick-or-treaters should stay outdoors.
  • Candy or items should be spaced out on a table placed outdoors.
  • The use of a container allowing multiple people to access the treats is highly discouraged.
  • Parents of children that participate in trick-or-treating should make sure their children are wearing face masks, carry hand sanitizer and know-how and when to use it properly, and do not place any items in their mouth until the items have been checked and hands have been washed.


*The Vashon-Maury Island Chamber of Commerce will not be endorsing activities being provided by businesses and does not condone activities that do not adhere to the COVID compliance recommendations as outlined by CDC, State, and Local Health Authorities.
