10 Spooktacular Alternatives to Neighborhood Trick-or-Treating

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you didn’t do enough trick-or-treating this past weekend, there’s still time to don your spookiest, silliest, craftiest get-ups and get out there for some more!

Zillow recently rated Seattle as #4 in their list of 20 Best Cities to Trick-or-Treat! Each year Zillow comprises the list, based on the least amount of walking, the greatest safety and, most importantly, the most candy.

But if neighborhood trick-or-treating isn’t on the agenda this year, then check out some of these great alternatives.  Most trick-or-treating venues are for kids 12 and under, most are free, and all take place on Wednesday, October 31.

Tiny ghouls and goblins will be roaming the Village this Halloween!  Trick-or-treating, face painting and Halloween crafts.

  1. Thanks for all the ideas and locales. It makes it so much easier to have all the information and times. Happy Halloween!

  2. I heard Tacoma (old town) was the best place in the state for trick or treating (most full size candy bars). Not sure if that’s still true though. 🙂 Thanks for listing all the locations for festivities, fun stuff!

  3. Great list! A lot of Seattle neighborhoods (Madison Park, Madrona, Queen Anne) host Trick or Treaters in their business districts (E. Madison Street, Queen Anne Ave, etc). As long as it’s not too rainy we’ll be headed down to Madison Park. Let’s hope for a break in the showers!

    • Fingers crossed for no rain! (We have our trusty Batman umbrella if it does!) Madison Park would be a great place to trick-or-treat! Thanks for the comment! Happy Halloween, and get lots of loot 🙂
