Parents are encouraged to park and drop off Downtown Trick or Treat participants in the DHS parking lot across from The City Park and walk in order to keep traffic downtown to a minimum. The Dalles Lions Club have graciously volunteered to enhance the safety of the event with their presence in the downtown corridor. Please be respectful to their directions at intersections and all other times as they are helping to keep you and your family safe. We ask that drivers remain attentive and aware of their surroundings.

To enhance the safety of participants and families, the following intersections, between 2nd St. and 3rd St., will be closed to traffic; Court, Federal, Jefferson, and Madison for the two hour duration of the event. Drivers will be able to utilize all other side streets in the downtown that have traffic lights.

The Dalles Main Street would like to extend their gratitude to Wasco County Parks and Recreation, The Dalles Lions Club, The Dalles City Public Works, The Dalles Police Department, and downtown business owners.
