Here are just a few of the many Seattle Halloween events to check out before they vanish:
For the Little Boys and Ghouls:
Halloween is a wonderful opportunity to make memories with your family, and if your little ones are not quite ready for the truly terrifying, you may want to stick with these tamer Seattle events.
Monster Bash: Saturday, October 6th (Everett, WA)
Take your little monsters to the Flying Heritage and Armor Museum for all sorts of fun. Some of the events include a monster truck ride, trucks to touch and climb, scavenger hunt, face painting, and trick-or-treating, so be sure to have your family decked out in costumes to kick it up a notch.
Halloween Comes to the Zoo: Saturday, October 27 (Seattle, WA)
This annual event at Woodland Park Zoo, aimed for kids twelve and under, is always a popular choice. Don a costume and learn about animal behavior as many of the zoo’s residents play with pumpkins in their habitats. It is enriching for both your kids and the zoo’s animals.
Halloween Storytelling Train: October 20-21 and 27-28 (Snoqualmie, WA)
All aboard for lots of spooky stories as you hit the rails on a haunted train ride. Some of the stops include a cider pressing, kid’s activities, and of course, a trip to the top of Snoqualmie Falls.
Time for the Terrible Tweens:
Older children and teenagers may appreciate more tricks and fewer treats for their Halloween fun. These events may be more up their dark and gloomy alley.
Nile Nightmares Haunted House: Weekends in October (Mountlake Terrace, WA)
Get ready for nightmares after visiting the six haunted attractions, including an “escape from the crypt” room added for 2018. The thrills and chills at this haunted house may leave you breathless. Nile Nightmares is a short drive from Seattle in Mountlake Terrace.
Run Scared 5K and 10K: October 28 (Seattle, WA)
This annual Halloween-themed race and fun run benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. If running isn’t your thing, you can join the 4K walk, treasure hunt, or costume contest. Plus, there is even a candy corn tasting bar! The Run Scared 5K and 10K are fun events for a great cause, and you can bring your dogs ― preferably in costume.
Georgetown Morgue: Weekends in October and the full week of Halloween (Seattle, WA)
A haunted house in an actual morgue is not for the weak of heart, but if you are feeling brave, you should give it a try. This event is not recommended for children under twelve unless you opt to go to the more child-friendly “lights-on” afternoon version.
For Old Souls Only:
Who says adults are too old for Halloween? Seattle has plenty of parties, plays, and other exciting events best enjoyed with your fellow night owls and witches.
Haunt at MoPOP: Saturday, October 27 (Seattle, WA)
It is a wild night for Halloween revelry, but it is held at a museum, so it has got a touch of the culture built right in. Expect amazing costumes, live music, and a lively party atmosphere for the over 21 crowds. Selling out every year, it is important to get your tickets early.
This Is Halloween: October 19-31 (Seattle, WA)
Can Can Productions puts on quite a show with this live music and dance version of the Tim Burton classic. Held at the Triple Door Theatre, this event has been a Seattle staple for almost two decades.
