Happy Haunting

Halloween is barely a month away – time to start planning your costume and deciding where and how to celebrate.

The Mardi Gras of the Pacific is Lahaina on Maui.  The annual parade on Main Street has a family friendly version early and then later it definitely turns more “adult”.  Costumes are definitely the order of the day and there is music all evening .  If you’ve never been – it’s worth doing at least once.

 

Las Vegas is another nearby Halloween haunt.  The Hard Rock Casino and Resort is hosting the “Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Bash”.  There’s no shortage of parties in the various clubs and hotels around Vegas to celebrate.

Want something closer to home?  Tulalip Casino just north of Seattle in Marysville is hosting “Monster Bash”.  Tickets are only $15 in advance so you can spring for a hotel room for the night too!

Snoqualmie Casino has the KISW  “Heaven or Hell” bash in their ballroom with tickets for $25.  They don’t have a hotel so you’ll either have to drive home after the party (so be sure you have a designated driver) or stay nearby at the Salish Lodge.

All these big parties are taking place on the Saturday night before Halloween.  Get your tickets – especially if you also want to get a room – early!  There are also costume contests at most so you could make it a profitable and fun evening.

Don’t want to bother with a costume but want to get in the spirit of the season?  KUBE 93 has their annual “Haunted Morgue” in Georgetown.  Buy tickets on line and spring for the VIP pass and skip the line – that’s $10 well spent!  Do a quick Google search and you will no doubt find other haunted houses including some that are “family friendly” such as the one at the Nile Country Club in Mountlake Terrace.

Want to do something unique on Halloween proper (rather than the weekend before)?  Try Private Eye on Seattle Ghost and True Crime Tours.  At only $28 they offer 2.5 hours of haunted history of Seattle from a comfortable van.

If you end up not making plans but decide you want to have some fun – take an empty wine glass and go “Adult Trick or Treating” door to door in your own neighborhood!  Anyway you choose to celebrate, have a haunting good time!
