Fall in Seattle: Our Favorite Local Festivities

Dr. Peralta and his team are proud to be a part of the local Seattle community! Just because summer has ended, that doesn’t mean that there’s less to do in our beautiful city. We’d like to share our five favorite fall festivities taking place in Seattle and the surrounding areas.


Burien Brat Trot – October 4th


Our Burien & Seattle orthodontics practice is proud to be a sponsor of the Burien Brat Trot that takes place on Saturday, October 4th in beautiful Burien! The Burien Brat Trot is a flat and fast 5K and one mile run through the streets of Burien followed by an amazing street party that has something for every member of the family. This is an event not to be missed as there will be live music, beer gardens and loads of fun activities for kids.


Northwest Chocolate Festival – October 3rd and 4th


The Northwest Chocolate Festival will be held at the Bell Harbor Pier in Seattle on October 3rd and 4th from 10AM to 5PM. This is a not-to-miss event and a dream come true for chocolate lovers! The festival showcases over 80 of the finest craft chocolate and confection companies from the world over with free samples to enjoy. There are live chocolate making demos to watch, workshops to attend that teach you how to make chocolate candies and pastries and opportunities to talk with cacao farmers from Ecuador and Peru plus lots more! Admission is $30 for a day pass and $50 for an all-day weekend pass. A half day pass is available at the door beginning at 12:30pm for $20. Kids under the age of 14 are admitted for free if accompanied by a ticketed parent or guardian.


KUBE 93.3FM Haunted House – Every evening in October


October wouldn’t be complete without a trip to a haunted house! The KUBE 93.3FM haunted house is dubbed Seattle’s best haunted house located at the Georgetown Morgue of Seattle at 5000 E. Marginal Way South. Opening hours are from 7pm to 10pm every evening for everyone over the age of 12. Younger children are not allowed in as the haunted house is not appropriate for small kids. However, if you have children under 12, you can take them to Kid’s Day on October 18th for a lights-on tour. To get your kids in for free, bring along three cans of food per child to donate to Food Lifeline. General admission is $21 but Sunday admission is just $18 if you donate 3 cans of food to Food Lifeline.

This is a multicultural festival held on Seattle Center grounds that is “Celebrating Our Big Neighborhood.” This is a wonderful event that brings together local communities that showcase and celebrate families of the Northwest to introduce kids to new cultures and traditions. The festival features a wide variety of educational and hands-on programs, many live performances and interactive workshops geared toward families and children of all ages. Admission is free.
