Seattle’s Best and Safest Neighborhoods for Trick-or-Treating

On any given day of the week, kids running from door to asking for candy be a cause for alarm, but on All Hallows’ Eve, it’s acceptable. Yet, just because it’s acceptable doesn’t mean that you must proceed without caution. If you want to worry less about your kids’ safety and enjoy the night with the same enthusiasm as your little ones, take them to one of these four neighborhoods scoped out on your behalf by our orthodontist in Seattle.


Boo in Burien


Haunted houses, wiener dog races, canine costume contests, oh my! Join your friends and neighbors on SW 152nd street for some strange and ghoulish fun that is sure to delight any age group. After Fido enjoys his time in the spotlight and the little ones tire of tricks, take the family from door to door for more treats.


Where: 427 SW 152nd St, Burien

When: October 27, 2018, from noon to 4 pm


West Seattle Junction Harvest Festival


If you want to be extra cautious this Hallows’ Eve, take your kids trick-or-treating in the daylight hours. The Junction is, as usual, hosting its annual trick-or-treating event during the Harvest Festival, which runs from 10 am to 2 pm the Sunday before Halloween. However, trick-or-treating starts at noon, so be sure to arrive in full costume and with pillow cases at the ready.


Where: 4210 SW Oregon Street

When: October 28, 2018, trick-or-treating starts at noon
