West Seattle Halloween 2012: It was a dark and not-so-stormy night

October 31, 2012 at 10:35 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

The rain stopped just in time for the heart of Halloween around West Seattle – and by mid-evening, a spooky moonrise lit up the eastern sky (thanks to Lise for sending the photo from High Point). Speaking of space …

We stopped by the space-themed Skeleton Theatre (which repeats tomorrow night, 6-9 pm!) – was that old-school phone for E.T.? Big crowd at 36th and Hanford. More on that later, including a bit of video. But we started the evening with trick-or-treaters at Westwood Village:

Wyatt’s Jewelers (WSB sponsor) was one of the stores participating in the shopping center’s annual trick-or-treating this evening. They had a “guess how much candy in the jar” contest going, too. At nearby Barnes & Noble, it was book-or-treat:

Of course the staff chose literary themes – that’s “Sherlock Holmes” at left. Now, on to the neighborhoods … From Sunrise Heights – Paul got this trick-or-treat team to sit still for a snapshot:

Cloudia sent photos, including the next two:

Her greeting for you: “Happy Halloween from the Organic Sprouts Daycare and the Haynes household”:

Next, from Natonia – Dom, in the “old-school rapper” outfit:

At the Starbucks drive-through just west of the bridge, Tiea found this character:

Thanks to everybody who shared photos!


  1. Thank you to the North Delridge folks who turned on their lights and welcomed all the trick-or-treaters! The kids had a great time!

  2. Thanks for sharing the great photos! I didn’t get many trick-or-treaters as there’s about 100 steps up my front stairs, so it’s great to see the costumes here. Love love the Ewok.
