HALLOWEEN: Admiral District businesses will welcome trick-or-treaters after all

Speaking of candy … The Admiral District will have trick-or-treating after all! Just in:

The organizers of the Admiral District Halloween regretfully cancelled this year’s event earlier this month. The decision was made out of caution since no guidelines had been given from the CDC, and Covid trends were unclear. While some of the businesses in the Admiral District were in favor of hosting the event, others were not. With a lack of a consensus, the event was cancelled.

This week we received new information. On October 12th, Dr. Fauci made the announcement that Halloween events should be safe as long as they are held outdoors. Given this new information, we are proud to bring this fun family event back to our community for 2021!

We are very excited to announce that the Admiral District Halloween event will be held on Friday October 29th from 3pm to 6pm! Event posters will be distributed to Admiral District Merchants this week. Kids and their parents can look for the sign in the window of participating businesses and Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween!

At least two other business-district trick-or-treat events are planned – the West Seattle Junction on October 31st, 10 am-2 pm, and downtown White Center, also on Halloween, starting at 3 pm.

    I live at 34/Charleston, does this include me? Where are Admiral lines drawn? Also is this for houses or businesses? Why is it not on Halloween night?

      This is a business-district event. As for the timing, Admiral District businesses have done this for years on the Friday afternoon closest to Halloween so families can participate after school that day.

    Hooray! SO glad they decided to make it happen this year!! This is our favorite Halloween tradition. Thank you, Admiral District businesses!

    Historically Hiwatha Community Center had a Halloween Carnival the Friday before Halloween because it wasn’t a school night. When that stopped the Admiral businesses stepped in with the same idea.

Sorry, comment time is over.
