Costume carnival

The city of Mountlake Terrace Dance Program and Kontagious Dance Co. will host their fifth annual Costume Carnival from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Terrace Park School Gym, 5409 228th St. SW in Mountlake Terrace.

The event at the school’s gym includes harvest festival activities, dance performances, costume contests, a magician and fortune teller.

Performances by Kontagious and Dance Program students will be ongoing throughout the event.

Admission is $5, or $10 for families of up to four at the door. Proceeds will benefit the Mountlake Terrace Dance Co. Scholarship Fund and the Kontagious Dance Company.

Weigh in on Mukilteo parking: The Mukilteo Planning Commission offers a public hearing at 7 p.m. Thursday at City Hall, 11930 Cyrus Way, to consider an amendment to the city’s parking lot regulations.

The proposed change would make it easier to build commercial parking lots in the city and convert other lots to commercial use.

Help name the woods: When the Whidbey Camano Land Trust announced last month it had sealed the deal to buy forestland owned by the Trillium company, the nonprofit organization also launched a contest to give the community forest a new name.

To propose a name, download a form from or come to the Whidbey Camano Land Trust office in Barn C at the Greenbank Farm (765 Wonn Road in Greenbank). Submit the form by Nov. 15.
