Seattle Events Calendar - October 2016

Seattle Halloween Parties
••• Seattle Halloween Parties. Jim Crotty via Flickr

October is one of my favorite events calendars. Between seasonal happenings and the usual line-up of concerts, shows and plays, there’s just so much going on.

What’s not to miss this month? Halloween and fall-season fun. Pumpkin patches and corn mazes open in rural areas just outside of Seattle and Tacoma. Haunted houses from mild to downright scary open to frighten the masses, or if that's a little too much maybe try a ghost tour. And in the days surrounding Halloween, Halloween parties also range from mild to wild.

Also check out this list of the best areas to go trick or treating!
