Happening now: Admiral Treats and Treasures, report #1

That’s “Molly the Bubble,” we were informed, in the washing machine outside Wiseman’s Appliance and TV in The Admiral District, one of the places we stopped in the first hour of Admiral Treats and Treasures. Some businesses away from Admiral Junction set up tables there to catch more trick or treaters, like Life Care Center of West Seattle (WSB sponsor):

The trick-or-treating-and-more event continues till 6 pm – here’s the list of participants, along with a reminder to go to Merrill Gardens-Admiral Heights (2326 California SW; WSB sponsor) before you’re done, for a chance at the “treasure”! More photos in report #2 later tonight.

    OMG. I wonder if I can whip up an adult-sized pegasus costume in 24 hours. That’s an amazing costume.

      Sorry WS – will fix. Patrick told me Dolly, I swear.

    I drove through just as they were getting started – loved how all the merchants were dressed up! So fun and festive despite the nasty weather!

    Too bad the Junction moved the day from Saturday to Sunday.
    How many people know of the change? A number of merchants are very upset about this change. fyi

      Pretty sure the word has gotten out. It’s been seven weeks now (and I would imagine the merchants knew about it sooner) since the public announcement:

      .
      WSB is by no means the only place where it’s been announced, but here alone, we have had 193,000 unique visitors and 1.6 million pageviews in those seven weeks (also have posted multiple mentions on our Facebook page, which has 8,400 followers), and certainly the Junction Association itself has a popular website and Facebook page read by thousands. And the posters up around The Junction and elsewhere are eye-catching! We’ll know for sure when we see how Sunday goes; the forecast is for “rain at times,” like today, but perhaps we’ll be lucky and get a four-hour break … TR

    I was Molly the Bubble from Wiseman’s and let me tell you West Seattle has the BEST Trick or Treaters around! Such happy, friendly kiddos with marvelous families! It was a delight all the way around.

    Sounds like you have the perfect attitude to be Molly, Molly!

    Would not have wanted you to get agitated!
