Costume parade, trick or treat and Farmers Market will be featured
A brand new community festival is coming to West Seattle, put on by the Junction Merchants, it's the Harvest Festival, set for Sunday October 28th, 10am - 2pm
Susan Melrose, Junction Merchants Association Manager said, "We are expanding the popular Trick-or-Treat in The Junction into something new for our neighborhood. The Harvest Festival will be an opportunity for West Seattle families to continue the Trick-or-Treat tradition while adding elements that appeal to a broader audience. Most importantly, WE'RE CLOSING THE STREETS!"
The street closure will allow the West Seattle Farmers Market to move out onto California Avenue for the first time. In partnership with the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance, over 40 local farmers will set up to share their goods at the peak of harvest.
The event will include a kids' costume parade followed by Trick-or-Treating between Noon and 2pm.
The Junction is also inviting schools, clubs, non-profits, churches, and even businesses to set up a Harvest Activity tent (art activities or a game). It's free to set up an activity but it must be free for festival goers.
Please email Susan Melrose, email@example.com, if you'd like to provide a Harvest Activity to be approved by the committee.
California Ave SW will be closed between Edmunds and Oregon, and Alaska St. will be closed between 44th and 42nd.
