On the List — Hilloween 2021 edition: Trick or treating on Capitol Hill, Seattle Weavers’ Guild Show and Sale, Hotel Sorrento Zombie Soiree

Yes, there will be trick or treating on Capitol Hill in 2021. And, yes, Pike/Pine’s bars will be vaxed, masked, and packed. Here are this week’s special Halloween edition highlights from the CHS Calendar. You can also Add Your Event here.

Wear your mask… and your Hilloween mask and don’t forget your proof of vax.





  • Grand Opening of the Wunderground Cafe: Celebrate the new E Pike cafe with free mushroom coffee and giveaways.

  • Hilloween trick or treating: Things will still be a little muted but the trick or treat hot zone is set to rise again on the blocks surrounding 16th Ave E and E Aloha. With masks and prevalence of vaccinated adults, heck, the CDC isn’t just saying trick or treating can be safe — it’s encouraging it. Still, the party will be a little more calm and many of the decorations won’t be at past levels as neighbors try to keep crowds down. Watch for candy tubes and socially distanced candy distribution to still be in play at many houses. Here are some the ideas health officials passed along for the even more subdued Hilloween 2020 that still might apply for trick or treating this year:
    + Use tape to mark waiting spots 6 feet apart on the way up to your door.
    + Use fun ways to give the candy while staying 6 feet apart, like slide the candy down a wrapping paper tube into their trick-or-treat bags. Or individually wrap goodie bags and line them up for families to grab and go while staying social distanced (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard).
    + When you answer the door for trick-or-treaters, wear a mask.

    Yes, wear… masks! As for 2021, with Halloween falling on a Sunday, expect a slightly earlier run of fun for trick or treaters and at area bars and restaurants. Of course, proof of vaccination will be required for indoor service at all venues with capacity for more than a dozen people.

    The forecast, meanwhile, is calling for a cool, clear, and dry Halloween Sunday.
