Kids’ activity Saturday at the Georgetown Morgue

Sorry for the short notice, but right now Saturday at the Georgetown Morgue (soon to be the site of this year’s KUBE Haunted House), 5000 E. Marginal Way South, there’s a “scare-free” event for kids, with pumpkin decorating, costume contests, and so-on. It’s scheduled to run until 3:00 pm, so you still have time to get down there. It’s scheduled from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

Afterward, there’s always the Haunted House itself, which opens that evening. But that one won’t be scare-free. (They suggest it for ages 12 and up.) It won’t exactly be cheap, either; tickets are $10–$25.

I don’t suppose anyone knows of any haunted houses up here on Beacon Hill — or perhaps in the Valley or Columbia City? If you do, fill us in on the details, please!

Thanks, Seattle Weekly— but next time, why not put the date of the actual event on the web page, instead of the publish date?

This Wednesday, October 22, is the last day of this season’s Columbia City Farmers Market, and the season will end with a colorful, glittery splash: a children’s pumpkin decorating event, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Pumpkins and squashes, along with paint, glitter, feathers, etc. will be supplied by the Market.

The Market is located at 4801 Rainier Avenue South (at South Edmunds). Directions may be found at the Market’s web page, or at Google Maps.
