PHOTOS: Admiral District trick-or-treating on Halloween Eve 2015

3:55 PM: The radar was right! No rain as the businesses of The Admiral District host West Seattle kids for trick-or-treating. Just come on over to California and Admiral and the surrounding area – west to 44th, east to 41st, and north/south for a ways.

Get treats, and tell your friendly local businesspeople “thanks”! Or, in the case of those handing out treats at Brookdale, your friendly local residents:

It’s on until 6 pm.

4:18 PM: Above are the ladies of Admiral Bird, where we’re based while doing some as-it-happens updating. Below, the space shuttle landed in the pumpkin patch of the Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) costume contest, concurrent with trick or treating:

We’ve also seen a Blue Angel, 10 months early!

Continuing with the aviation theme:

And … Teletubbies?

More costumed proprietors … Parris and Kent Sadow at Atomic Boys:

Under the really big hat, that’s Dr. Keith McDonald at A Kids Place Too Dentistry for Children (WSB sponsor):

Eek! Alki Bike and Board is haunted!

4:46 PM: We found The Incredibles!

So – you think West Seattle traffic is bad on the streets? Check out the sidewalk near-miss:

Excellent Halloween soundtrack at The Bird, by the way. “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” “Thriller,” “Somebody’s Watching Me,” more. And a bit further south on California, it wouldn’t be Halloween without the Wiseman’s Appliance freezer – portrayed by Molly:

More later.

P.S. Lots more Halloween Eve fun to follow – including the nearby Hiawatha Community Center Carnival, 6:30-8:30 pm – check out the WSB West Seattle Halloween Guide.

    A big thank you to all the trick or treaters who came into Brookdale Admiral Heights yesterday. Even after we ran out of candy (twice), families still came in to visit with our residents, who so look forward to this event. Also a big shout out to the Admiral Merchants for the gift baskets we raffled off yesterday. We can’t wait for next year!

    Are there any candy buyback programs this year?

    • WSB November 1, 2015 (12:21 pm)

      Not that we have heard/found. We had one last year, and that wasn’t repeated.

Sorry, comment time is over.
