Zom-Bees Knees Bash at Smith Tower

The spookiest speakeasy in town is hosting another 3-day Halloween extravaganza. Pick 1 night to be wowed by Sister Kate Dance Company’s performances as zombie flappers, mummies, and more! Just wear a ‘20s-themed costume to enjoy a glass of sangria upon arrival and the Halloween menu of bites and specialty cocktails (at additional cost). Doors open at 7 p.m.

Seattle Chocolate Haunted Factory Tour

Take a tour of the Seattle Chocolate Factory in search of the secret treasure. You’ll be sure to run into mystical magic mirrors, scary characters, and ghoulish treats along the way. Don’t miss the opportunity. It only happens Thursday to Saturday on the last 2 weekends of October.

Collide-o-Scope Halloween

This year, the luxurious SIFF Cinema Egyptian is being transformed into the biggest Halloween film extravaganza. Be prepared to jump out of your skin while watching the found-footage phantasmagoria of video, music, and mash-ups. They’ve got cool giveaways too. To add to the suspense, there’s a secret surprise guest. Check out the trailer here.

Halloween “Tricks and Eats” at the Zoo

Chef Ethan Stowell and his team will prepare delectable eats (and treats) for you to enjoy at the Woodlands Park Zoo on Sunday evening, October 28. Don’t be surprised to see some tricks from a few of the ambassador animals and slithering friends of the zoo. There are only 125 spots available, so get your tickets soon and support the zoo’s mission to save wildlife. Don’t forget your costume!
