The holiday lives.

Adapting to the age of Coronavirus, the Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association is hosting a modified Halloween event Saturday night.

Instead of the normal downtown costume parade, things are being changed up with participants staying inside their cars, with a sweet (or sour) candy payoff at the end.

Some pertinent details:

🎃 All volunteers will be masked.

🎃 Line-up starts at 4:15 PM. Parade begins at 5:00.

🎃 Cars will enter the parade from the Coupeville Municipal Lot behind the library.

To get there from Main Street, go west on 1st Street, north on Wilkes (right), then enter the grass lot at the end of Wilkes.

🎃 Participants must remain in their vehicle for the entirety of the parade.

If you wish to decorate your vehicle, which is highly recommended, it must be decorated BEFORE entering the staging area.

🎃 Tune your radio to 101.7 for event information and parade music.

🎃 Candy bags (packaged and handed out following COVID-19 safety protocols) will be given out at the end of the route.

🎃 All are welcome, but participants are asked to limit vehicle passengers to those living in the same household.

Janesah and Janeah Goheen

Janesah and Janeah Goheen

Local runners can help transform a day of mourning into a day of hope and love, building something beautiful in memory of two transcendent young women.

Halloween night of 2013, twin sisters Janeah and Janesah Goheen of Oak Harbor were badly injured in a car accident caused by a driver who was convicted on three counts this week.

The bright, outgoing, musically talented sisters both died from their injuries.

Now, family friend Dena Royal is hoping to turn that tragic day around a bit, by launching a 5K run in Coupeville which will raise funds for a music scholarship which will honor the Goheens and their love of the arts.

The Goheen Twins Memorial 5K Run/Walk will kick off at 10 AM Saturday, Oct. 31.

Entry will be $10 per person, with t-shirts $15 each. Entry forms are expected to be available by Sept. 25.

Money raised from t-shirt sales will go towards education regarding aggressive driving on Whidbey Island.

There will also be prize drawings for those who make extra donations on race day.

The race will start at Coupeville Elementary School, then head out along the paved Kettles Trail before winding its way back.

Finishing times will be provided, but it’s not a competitive race.

Bicycles and dogs (except for service animals) will not be allowed and children under the age of 13 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

If you’re not able to take part in the race, but would like to donate to the music scholarship, you can send a check to PO Box 1092, Coupeville, WA, 98239.

Make checks payable to Goheen Twins Memorial 5K and write “donation” on the check.

There will be a meeting for volunteers at 6:30 PM this Wednesday, Sept. 23 at Whidbey Isle Yarns (12 Front Street in Coupeville).
