In addition to return of the Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes, there are quite a few other happenings taking place to honor Halloween and the abrupt beginning of fall:
- Olympic View Elementary’s annual Fall Carnival returns from 3-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, offering an afternoon filled with games, prizes, food and fun for the whole family. There are creative and fun game-booths where kids of every age can play for prizes, including a cake walk where anyone can win a Halloween cake. The event also has food, drinks and snacks, and don’t forget to come in costume! Proceeds go to the Olympic View PTA, which provides student enrichment programs, scholarships to help students participate in school functions, and family engagement activities.
- This Charming Candy is also bringing back its Grown-Up Trick-or-Treat event from 4-7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29, at The Wandering Cafe at 7533 Lake City Way N.E. Owner Susan Dziadosz tells us,
- Zillow has ranked Seattle No. 4 on the nation’s list of the best places to go trick-or-treating, and within Seattle, our neighbors to the south in Roosevelt were ranked the city’s fifth-best neighborhood to go trick-or-treating. Brace yourself for possible spillover on Halloween!
This Charming Candy had so much fun giving out lollipops last year, we’re doing it again! Whether you’re in costume or not, drop by our lollipop kitchen on Monday Oct 29 between 4-7, exclaim “Trick or Treat!” and pick out the sucker of your choice. We call it “Grown-up Trick or Treat” but all ages are welcome of course!
