Issaquah Highlands’ Green Halloween Party ROCKS!

October 23rd’s Issaquah Highlands Green Halloween Festival was a spooktcular day, indeed!

About 5,000 attendees enjoyed hay rides, mazes, mad scientists, DIY face painting, bounce houses, and green goodies galore. By all accounts the event was a smash hit.

Despite the weather forecast, participants stayed (mostly) dry!

Early birds received free ParentMap reusable shopping bags with goodies inside.

The event was also a food-raiser for the Issaquah Food Bank and Seattle Humane Society. By the end of the the day, these bins were overflowing!

Kids trick-or-treated for healthy, eek-o-friendly goodies from Larabar, Cascadian Farm, Stretch Island Fruit Co, Glee Gum, Recycling is Cool and more.

The do-it-yourself face painting (featuring Lyra pencils) at the Green Halloween booth was a HUGE hit for kids (and some parents with a good sense of humor)

    Love the community feel of the green haloween party today. Even with the rain everyone was having fun.
    I can’t wait for Safeway to come to the Highlands, kudus to their fun booth and great prizes.
    I was disappointed in Cafe Lardo for charging for drip coffee. Maybe next year we can bring Starbucks or Tullys in to give away free drip coffee.

    Also, I didn’t see any food donation bins.

    Thanks for a great event.

    SO glad you could be there, Beth! Great to hear you had a great time. It WAS an incredible day, despite the yucky weather! Donation bins should have been at the ticket booths. So sorry they were not more prominently placed. Looking forward to seeing you again next year!
