Two spooktacular Halloween events happening in Sammamish
As Halloween rolls around the corner, Sammamish is getting ready with fun-filled events for children (and adults) of all ages. From trick-or-treating to haunted houses, here are two local Halloween events to check out.
Pumpkin Party on the Plaza
Thursday, Oct. 27 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Sammamish City Hall Plaza (801 228th Ave SE, Sammamish, WA 98075)
The City of Sammamish is holding an outdoor Halloween event as an alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating. Guests are welcomed to come in costume and visit a variety of spooktacular booths, collecting treats along the way and visiting the special activity booth for a fun surprise. Attendees of all ages are welcome. If parking at city hall is full, please use overflow parking at Mary Queen of Peace.

Monster Mash Sammamish

1207 225th Ave NE, Sammamish, WA 98074
For the second year in a row, Jessica Devine and her son, Sam, have created a family-friendly haunted house. Their mini-haunt last year, Haunted Hogwarts, raised over $7,000 for Giving Hope, a local nonprofit organization.
This year, the theme will be “Monster Mash.” They are partnering again with former members of the Nightmare at Beaver Lake crew and will be featuring actors to “bring their mini-haunt to life,” Devine said.
Through this project, they hope to “provide a family-friendly Halloween experience where kids can learn about how they can give back to their community,” Devine said.
This year, funds raised through the event will benefit three nonprofits — Giving Hope Project, Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park, and Kids Coming Together.
All three groups will be present with information booths and volunteers at the event so that guests can learn more about getting involved. The event is free for all to attend, but there is a suggested donation of $20 per family to one of the nonprofits.
As a family-friendly attraction, Devine said there will be no jump-scares. Costumes are welcome.

We hope you have fun visiting these events in the coming days. Happy Halloween!
