WEDNESDAY: Admiral District trick-or-treating!

(2018 trick-or-treating at WSB sponsor A Kids Place Dentistry for Children)

New date this year, so we’re reminding you again tonight that tomorrow (Wednesday, October 30th) is when Admiral District businesses will be welcoming trick-or-treaters, 3-6 pm. Not only will businesses around the Admiral/California junction be participating, don’t miss the businesses on 42nd SW, such as WSB sponsors Metropolitan Market (north of Admiral) and West Seattle Realty (south of Admiral, on the east side of the Admiral Safeway building). Also, the West Seattle High School ASB will host “trunk or treating” along the road between Hiawatha and the school’s front entrance, 3-5 pm, so wander up that way too!

    I hadn’t heard that the vacated stretch of S.W. Stevens between West Seattle High School and Hiawatha Park would be included in this year’s Halloween activities. What exactly does “trunk or treating” mean? I’m wondering whether it’s something that youngsters and their parents might want to attend.

    Trunk or Treating is when people hand out treats from the trunk or hatch of their car. Many rural communities do this. Allows kids from isolated areas to enjoy trick or treating from the safety of a parking area by a community center.

    The trunk or treating trend in a walkable city, neighborhood or community is a huge bummer. Halloween is not dangerous because of the urban legends such as drug-laced candy or whatever other rumors people spread, the danger that exists is due to traffic violence–it’s the most common day for children to be struck and killed by car drivers. Trick or Treating is an awesome holiday celebration for our youth, and we are doing nothing to address the risks they face simply walking through their neighborhoods. Parking cars (!) in a parking lot to get candy from is not a solution to our unsafe roadways.

      This would be why the Junction Association finally turned business trick-or-treating into a streets-closed event (Harvest Festival).

        I think it would be cool to do some “night-out” street closures on Halloween to encourage drivers to stay home/off the roads if possible. I wonder if there are any communities out there who have done something similar…I’ll reach out to SPD, maybe this is something they have considered.
