Here’s our list of West Seattle Halloween-season events and decorations! Got something to add? Let us know ASAP – firstname.lastname@example.org – thank you?
Thanks for the tips! We asked readers to send word of sightings (and whether they’re best viewed daytime or nighttime), photos if possible – here’s what we have, south to north, so far. (Note, exact addresses are only included when it was clear the tip came directly from the resident – otherwise, we’ve given a general location.):
18th/Roxbury – From Lacey, “We have a ton of decorations up this year. They are fun to look at day or night, if you peek over the fence you can see the whole yard is decorated for my son‘s birthday. We are finalizing our trick-or-treat plans, but we should have the yard open to walk through and trick-or-treat at some point on Halloween. Most likely late afternoon to early evening.”
Seola Beach/SW 106th: “Zombie house”
9238 13th Ave SW – From Mary McCaman:
35th SW/SW 102nd: From Rachel – “More to come to on Halloween for a haunted alley.”
34th SW/ SW 100th: From Arlene – “Arbor Heights neighbors’ creative Halloween spirit on full display in front of their home… Beware! The display is lit up at night, but more clearly visible during the day.”
42nd SW & SW 102nd: “Ghost on an old bike and graveyard”
42nd SW & SW 106th: Inflatable dragon, across from a giant werewolf
30th SW between Barton and Cambridge – From Nicole: “We wanted to share, our typically spirited block during the Christmas holiday, is now festive for Halloween too. Attached is our house at the 9200 block of 30th SW. A few other neighbors have some lights too. We will potentially be closing the street for trick-or-treaters, so come look before Halloween evening.”
7700 block 46th SW: “Every Halloween my husband, Blair DeWeese, creates a kid-friendly scene.”
4500 block SW Director: Day or night viewing.
3714 SW Austin: “Halloween Show: Will occur every Friday+Saturday night if it’s not raining, 7 pm-9 pm.
Halloween Night: We hope for and welcome trick or treaters. But we will also be offering contactless candy bags for social distancing if parents prefer. We’re both vaccinated and will be masked for all trick or treaters.”
SW Portland east of California – From Yma: “These 2 scenes are mid-block. We love to chat with neighbors strolling by.”
7019 14th Ave SW – From Ashley: “I love pumpkins and like to do a display every year. Garth the spider is protecting them this year.”
17th SW & SW Holly – From the Dyers, “Here are some photos of our decorations and Rube Goldberg Candy Machine. Good to see in the daylight and lit up at night as well. We will be “OPEN” 30th & 31st @ 5 pm~10 pm.”
3117 SW Raymond – From Zach, Colleen, and Melina Peterson: “We are pretty proud of our decorations this year. They are best viewed at night, but can also be appreciated in the day. It is also best to walk up rather than drive by as the cheeky epitaphs are hard to read from the street. Our neighbor, also has some pretty good ones :) ”
5641 34th Ave SW – From Landon: “Viewable day and night. At night there are some creepy scenes being projected on the front window.”
SOUTH OF THE JUNCTION
42nd/Hudson – From Amanda: “NE corner house has an amazing display of spooky stuff. A photo can’t do it justice. A few houses south and on the west side of the street we have rock-climbing skeletons. Plenty of other good decorations heading south including witches and spiders with babydoll heads.”
5206 23rd Ave SW – From David: “We are all vaccinated and will have a no contact treat table set up at the bottom of our driveway. The yard is great to see in detail during the day and will have lights and music going at night starting Friday October 29th thru Halloween.”
2825 SW Adams – Ron sent this pic of his display near Dragonfly Park:
26th SW near Delridge Community Center – sent by Laurie.
37th between Stevens and Lander – Thanks to Sylvia for the photo:
38th & Lander – Thanks to Barbara for the photo:
48th Ave SW between SW Spokane and SW Hinds – From Sonia: “This house has a spectacular display every year. Best seen at night because of the lights, but also creepy during the day to see creative details.”
2700 block 38th SW: From Nichol – “Great display in Admiral area.”
3633 44th SW – From Rebecca – note this is mostly for Halloween night itself: “This is an older photo but it’s a rep of what we like to do. We have some things out for daytime viewing but save the animatronics and full size zombies for Halloween night (somewhat weather dependent).”
48th SW/SW Genesee: From Teresa – “We have our home all ready for Fall and Halloween with a lot of pumpkins and a few spooky decorations.”
3916 55th SW: From Brittany: “Our house is pretty decked out this Halloween.”
2010 California SW #A – From Jane: “We tried to go all out this year and become ‘the spider house.’ (On Halloween) we’ll have tons of candy!”
2130 Alki SW – “Nightfall Orphanage.” See our story for details.
61st SW south of Admiral – Thanks to Zach for sending the pic of the haunted garden box:
3047 64th SW – From Aaron, “The Pirates’ House … best viewed at night when they are illuminated.”
3244 64th Ave SW – From Kristin: “Viewable day or night. During the day, you get better visibility of all the rats scurrying about. At night (Oct 22-24 and 29-31), the gravestones, skeletons and jack-o-lanterns will be illuminated.”
