For some of us, Halloween sets off each year’s extended holiday extravaganza. It is the beginning of the season that makes being a home owner and part of a community amazing fun. While Thanksgiving and Christmas each have their own virtues, Seattle neighborhoods know how to keep Halloween in the running for the season’s top spot. Here is WaLaw’s list of Seattle’s “don’t miss” Halloween activities to help you kick this festive time of year off right:
This is a great way to boost Halloween spirit in your neighborhood. You just need a few bags of candy and 30 minutes. Just sneak up to a neighbor’s house (ninja outfit optional), drop the candy with a copy of a paper ghost and instructions on how the recipient is to carry on the game, knock on the door and run. Find the instructions and everything you need at the link above.
