    Heh, if somebody was creative enough, maybe they could build a replica of the West Seattle Bridge to use as an “alley” for the pumpkin bowling!

    I say we celebrate Halloween again, we never trick or treated for Harvest. We had Halloween parties in our classrooms too. bring back HALLOWEEN, please.

    Oooh, the poster is gorgeous!!! Nice job whoever made it. ;)

  • ArtsyPants September 28, 2012 (8:05 pm)

    Is it just me, or does the pumpkin on the poster totally look 3D?

  • Jason September 28, 2012 (8:06 pm)

    Awesome poster. Any hints on the designer?

    • WSB September 28, 2012 (8:13 pm)

      The graphic is from the West Seattle Junction Association’s website; unless somebody from WSJA (or the designer her/himself) happens to see this and respond, I won’t be able to ask them till Monday.

    so psyched for this!!

  • Bonnie September 28, 2012 (10:23 pm)

    Okay, stupid question: Are they still doing the trick or treating in the junction on Saturday like they always do and then this on Sunday or is it being switched to Sunday?

    • WSB September 28, 2012 (10:29 pm)

      No separate trick-or-treating. Everything is part of the festival. Trick-or-treating noon-2 pm, with a costume parade at 12:30 pm (THAT will be really cool). Activities throughout. And we’ll have something grownups can put in THEIR bags (purses, pockets, whatever) – if you didn’t get the first-ever WSB freebie (an ice scraper, which is of course why the weather is still blissfully sunny) at our booth at the car show, come early and see us at Pumpkin Bowling because we’re restocking for the occasion. – TR

    This looks like so much fun!

  • Smitty September 29, 2012 (7:45 am)

    What the heck happened to halloween? Is it a Pc thing?


    • WSB September 29, 2012 (8:08 am)

      I’m no fan of the harvest label for events that are strictly Halloween, but please note that in this case, the Farmers’ Market – which is truly all about harvest – is part of the festival, with a special location on California just for that day. – TR

  • Celery September 29, 2012 (2:10 pm)

    Do any of the organizations setting up the activities need help from volunteers?

  • Chris Curtis September 30, 2012 (10:15 am)

    The West Seattle Farmers Market organizers are excited to be part of this new event and will be offering some fun market-centric games on this special harvest day. Our farmers are very excited to be able to stretch out a little along California and are hoping to see all their regular shoppers…and meet new ones as well!
