Zombies took over Issaquah, from the highlands to downtown, on Saturday, Oct. 27. Wet weather may have dampened the turnout for the Issaquah Highlands Green Halloween Festival, but plenty of revelers came out regardless to see the Reptile Man, catch some rides, or take a turn around the green in a horse-drawn wagon. Other seemingly normal folks turned into zombies for a day in downtown Issaquah for the annual Zombie walk and flash mob.
But with Halloween tomorrow, there's still plenty to keep you and the kids busy vamping it up. Don't forget to consult our interactive map of cool Halloween decorations (and add your favorite places), and check out these local "haunts."
Get Your Scare On
Check out these haunted happenings around Sammamish and Issaquah:
Nightmare at Beaver Lake continues through Halloween. There are frights for all, including family scare at 7 p.m., and the full scare beginning at 7:45 p.m. Bring a can of food to donate for $1 off admission.
Terror at Trossachs takes place Halloween night, featuring scares, live actors and animatronic characters…. And FULL size candy bars for a reward at the end.
There is no charge for the event and it’s open to all ages, but the website says there are some pretty intense scares so prepare your small people. Donations of canned goods will be accepted for NW Harvest.
If terror is not your thing, and you prefer not to trek around the neighborhood in the likely rain, there are several trick-or-treat opportunities for the little ones on Wednesday, Oct. 31.
Sammamish City Hall between 3 and 5 p.m. on Halloween. Trek through Sammamish City Hall for a fun, safe and dry Trick or Treat Adventure. Appropriate for all ages.
Gilman Village in Issaquah will turn into a trick-or-treater's haven between 4 and 6 p.m. on Halloween.
Downtown Snoqualmie is holding a "Treat Harvest" especially for the little ones (ages 6 and under) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Duvall downtown: about 70 local businesses (signified by a pumpkin sticker in the window) will be passing out treats to kids between 3 and 6 p.m.
No matter what you do, be sure to take a picture and upload your child's (or your) great costume to our Halloween Contest for a chance to win up to $5,000. The deadline to enter is Nov. 1.
