Issaquah Highlands’ Green Halloween Party ROCKS!

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

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)

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood is Zillow’s #1 rated local trick-or-treating destination. (Seattle was also rated as the #1 city for trick-or-treating in the nation.)

But now Wallingford is Seattle’s must-attend Green Halloween trick-or-treating location.

With 14+ participating trick-or-treat stops along the trail (on 45th and inside Wallingford Center) there’s plenty of healthy and EEK-o-friendly fun to go around. Molly Moons is also participating but joined in after the map was created; don’t forget to add them to your own map! Green Halloween and Whole Foods Market will also have booths.

Featured goodies from Larabar, Cascadian Farm, Stretch Island Fruit, Glee Gum, Revolution Foods, Plum Organics, Recycling is Cool and more.

Join us on Halloween day (10/31/10) from 3pm-5pm.

{Don’t forget to wear your DIY (or swapped!) costume and non-disposable treat carrier.}
