On the List | Hilloween 2015: carnival, where to trick or treat, haunted fun, and more

Halloween’s celebration of the dark, weird, and spooky brings especially dark, weird, and spooky fun to Capitol Hill. Twitter can fill with “Capitol Hill? Or Halloween?” jokes but don’t give in. You chose to live with these freaks. Head out, get dressed up, and give them candy!

First, we’ve updated the CHS Hilloween Trick or Treat Hot Zone Map for 2015 by pretty much not changing it one bit! The best, safest, most tricked out trick or treating happens on the teen avenues around E Aloha — just find 16th Ave E and bring your manners. Here’s what it looked like there — and across Capitol Hill — in 2014.

The big change is that red explosion of excitement-like icon on Broadway — that’s where you’ll find the new location for the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce’s annual Hilloween Carnival. For 2015, the carnival has moved indoors to Seattle Central’s Mitchell Activity Center at 1701 Broadway. Here are the details from caphilloween.com:

12:00 – 3:00 PM Carnival
3:30 – 4:00 PM Costume Parade
4:00 – 7:00 PM Trick-or-Treating on Broadway Ave.
2:30 – 4:30PM Haunted Bank Laboratory @ 1st Security Bank
5:00 – 7:00 PM Pizza Party @ Pagliacci’s (FREE slice to kids in costume!)
Hilloween, Capitol Hill’s favorite kid-friendly Halloween event returns Saturday, October 31th and it’s sure to delight kids of all ages. This community party is FREE and open to everyone – designed with kids in mind – but just as fun for adults too. We’re moving inside this year to avoid any chance of rain! Seattle Central College’s Mitchell Activity Center will host Hilloween this year and it falls on HALLOWEEN NIGHT itself!

CHS is a proud community sponsor.

Also stop by Volunteer Park for the Haunted Conservatory and jack-o-lanterns. More grown-up fun includes the Spookhaus 3 haunted house at the Northwest Film Forum, the Capitol Hill historical ghost tour starting at Elliott Bay Book Company, the Seattle Women’s Chorus’s Hallows In The Cathedral at St. Mark’s, and a candy bag full of parties. Check out the CHS Hilloween Calendar for details. You can also add your own event to the list.
