Looking for something to take little goblins and ghouls to for Halloween? There are several events open to the public planned for Oct. 26 - 28.

Hazelwood Elementary School will host its annual "Harvest Homecoming" from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26. The school is located at 7100 116th Ave. S.E. in Newcastle. The PTSA event will feature a dance party hosted by Star 101.5 and a food drive. Members of the surrounding community are invited to attend.

The Renton Community Center will host a Boo Carnival from 10 a.m. to noon, Oct. 27, at the center, 1715 Maple Valley Highway. For children ages 8 years old and older with a guardian, there is entertainment, special "BOO" crafts and games planned. Admission is $7 per child for pre-registration and $9 per child at the door.

Downtown Renton will set the stage for an Olde Fashion Halloween Party, also on Saturday, Oct. 27, presented by the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Renton. The party will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Main Street Square, between Second and Third streets across from Uptown Glassworks. There will be candy available at local businesses for trick-or-treaters, face-painting, popcorn and hot cider available in the square.The party will also feature old fashioned games like cake walk, fishing for prizes and bean bag toss to name a few.

Last year the free event attracted more than 800 kids. The party is a rain or shine event, with some tents provided for protection from nasty weather. For more information visit the City of Renton's event calendar.

The Landing will host a "Trick or Treat Street" from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at their shops at 828 N. 10th Place in Renton. Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer will meet trick-or-treaters for a photo opportunity at Union Bank, located at The Landing.

Participating merchants will have balloon bouquets at the front of their stores, so trick or treaters can identify the treat locations. A dollar donation is suggested for pictures with Dora to help the Friends of Renton Schools Foundation.  More information is available at  The Landing's website.
