Vashon Islanders take their celebrations seriously, in a non-serious sort of way. Halloween is no exception. On Friday, town was closed to cars, and left to ghouls, vampires, princesses and pirates in search of free treats, treats and more treats from local merchants. It’s one of my favorite spectacles on the island, where kids, parents, kin and crazy revelers take over town with a community block party that would warm a skeleton’s frame to the bone.
