Halloween Trick-Or-Treat

  • to
  • Downtown Edmonds, WA

    5th Ave N & Main Street, Edmonds, WA (map)

    47.810497 -122.365265

  • TRICK-OR-TREAT fellow reincarnated Pet Sematary zombie furs! D: Let's celebrate Halloween in Edmonds and show 'em that furries can be fun and spooky (Cause 'em to smile bright and flee of fright)! :3 I just learned from a co-worker about an trick-or-treat night in Downtown Edmonds where they block off the streets and the merchants hand out candy (prolly just be for lil' ones) and there is a costume contest for ALL AGES too! I know it falls on a work night (I thought I would throw it out there because we can't have ALL THE OM NOM NOMS), but it sound amazing and has been an annual event for years that could be a great opportunity for us furries to fursuit/dress up for Halloween outdoors (pending cooperating weather) as a group and not be hassled! =3 Could potentially even be an annual event for us? Who knows? *<:D Also get this!!! - An estimated 5,000 kids and parents come in costume to trick-or-treat participating businesses! D:  Gonna be a blast!

    There is NO ADMISSION charge (FREE) and the usual rules apply:
    - Please keep it appropriate, there will be children there
    - Have a good time (NO FURSUIT required - may need to dress up somewhat to get candy XP)
    - Be careful of the little ones under foot (there will be hundreds of Lil' Fans/ankle biters/hooman speed bumps XD)
    - Try to watch out for one another because we are out in public
    - Remember it will get dark fast, so remember if you are in suit, your vision will be even more limited than usual.

    Hope enough of you are interested (IF the weather holds out - cross those furry paws & toes - http://www.komonews.com/weather/) so that we can make this happen! Look forward to see y'all there!!!! =3 ~C>

    Contact me via Furlife, my FA under SiberHamster, or on this forum if you have any questions/comments.


    *<*<*<*< MEETING TIME & LOCATION >*>*>*>*

    4:00PM near the roundabout/circular fountain directly in the middle of where Main Street intersects 5th Ave. This gives us plenty of time to suit up / check out the layout / roam the shops and what not. Plan on being at the fountain @ 5pm & 6pm to meet those arriving and lost souls (ahem I mean Furries) that are unable to spot your fellow goblins (ahem I mean furs)...

    (The only areas to get suited up are in the public bathrooms or near and inside your car)

    (Tried to find out if you want to attend ASAP so you all can ask for a few hours off from work early in advance! - filled out my paperwork and just got approved! =D)


    See Meeting location here: http://goo.gl/maps/QX7M8


    Parking will be on the side streets around downtown. There is also the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry Terminal / Sounder-Community Transit Park & Ride lot just down the hill from the trick-or-treating area too. ;)

    I'm still goin, suited, and with an umbrella. ur all chickens. lol jk, but i'm not gonna let a little rain ruin my favorite day of the year. Just be glad halloween isn't cancelled like it is on the east coast. I'm a washintonian and rain is all i know. that is all, good day.

    October 31, 2012

    • Mix

      Hmm I guess an umbrella could work. I just am not sure since my suit has mm airbrushing on it

      October 31, 2012

  • Mix

    So what are we gobig to do considering all this rain?

    According to the weather forecast as seen in the link above, there is at least a 90% chance of rain in Edmonds this afternoon.

    My fursuit is not prepared for rain, and nor am I. Nothing that I know of in the house will adequately protect it from the rain, save for covering it up completely, and that defeats the purpose of having a costume; in addition, I lack any knowledge of restoring a suit after a soaking, and I'm not confident in my ability to absorb that information in the short time remaining. My tail in particular is a source of concern for me. It is larger than most canine tails I've seen, and most of that size comes from a thick, polyfilled base; if it absorbs any significant amount of water, the added weight would make it even more cumbersome than it already is.

    Much as I was looking forward to it, I suspect I may have to withdraw from this event. :(

    I heard that there will be some kind of extra spooky event in the basement of the Edmonds museum, which is about a block or so from the fountain. In case anyone's interested~

    If anyone needs a ride from the Bothell area I can give it. Going to Edmonds

    October 28, 2012

  • Thunder O.

    I'm thinking about not wearing my German Shepherd fursuit and not because of the rain, in fact I'm thinking more about going to the Halloween meet up in Bothell and that is not far from where I live.

    October 27, 2012

    • MaxCoyote

      Are you going to Bothel or Edmonds?

      October 28, 2012

    • Thunder O.

      I'm not sure yet, but I will have a better answer by Tuesday the 30th and I can send you a direct message on Twitter letting you know what my answer is.

      October 28, 2012

  • MaxCoyote

    I'll probably suit up at my car before I head on over. Normally I don't do that cause I don't wanna be without a spotter, or take my head off. But hey, it's Halloween. All bets are off. XD

    October 28, 2012

  • Carma/Stella

    i'm comin and i'm bringin my son again! he loves us furries. He will be his own superhero and i'll be wearing my halloween cat suit that i'm in the process of finishing. lol. c u all there!

    October 23, 2012

  • Naq R.

    I'd like to go. don't know if I can make it by 4 though. will have to run straight there after work.

    October 6, 2012

    • David

      According to the official page, the actual event starts at 5; the info above says we'll be meeting at the fountain around then to absorb latecomers into the collective. :D

      October 19, 2012

  • Thunder O.

    I will be suiting and taking my fish with me.

    :D omygoshomygoshomygoshomygosh

    October 16, 2012

  • Thunder O.

    If I go I might bring my fursuit and my fish so that the suiters can eat the fish.

    October 15, 2012

  • David

    All available info suggests I can be there by 4 with little trouble; however, getting into costume may prove more difficult, as I have no car to suit up in and no real inclination to change in a public restroom.

    I suppose I could suit up in advance, but I'd have to find a costume that doesn't lead to me getting hassled by ferry security... any suggestions? The best I can figure right now is wrapping myself in U-Haul cardboard and calling myself a box turtle. XD

    October 2, 2012

    • David

      Well, I've never been alone in public in a full costume before, so I hope you can understand where I'd be a bit paranoid... now that I think about it, though, the paranoia won't matter if I don't finish my costume in time.

      October 2, 2012

    • MaxCoyote

      That's the great thing about Halloween. We can get away with just walking around in public in half a suit.

      October 3, 2012

  • Frostbite (the not guilty f.

    I might try to find somewhere closer. I used to do Bothell when I lived in Everett (They've got a similar setup with the closing the streets). I need to see what Issaquah is doing since they're right next store before I'd commit to this.

    October 2, 2012

  • SiberHamster

    David. I myself do not suit up in my car because there is not enough room in any car (yes even in a super aircraft carrier land yacht!) XD. I just suit outside of my car using it as a somewhat shield. That is what I suggest you might want to try as I will be going back to my car and suiting up. If you feel up to it, would you be able to suit up but leave your head off on the ferry? Anyhoo, The cardboard box could make you look like a nice chocolate milk carton ya know? XP Hope to see you at the meetup! ~C>

    October 2, 2012

    • David

      *facepaw* Clearly, I am too dense to function in society; leaving my head off on the ferry should have been a simple answer, and yet I never thought of it. :p

      October 2, 2012

  • Kat

    If you manage to get lost downtown Edmonds, you could most likely stop anyone on the street and ask for directions to "the fountain". If they live around here, they'll know what you're talking about.

    October 2, 2012

  • Chibii

    Is a fursuit required or can you use another costume? I don't have my own suit.

    October 2, 2012

    • SiberHamster

      I answered your question above *Look up*

      October 2, 2012

  • SiberHamster

    Good question Chibii. NO fursuit is required to participate. It is a regular trick or treating event with kids in costume with parents and people of all ages wandering around the event. ^_^ ~C>

    October 2, 2012

  • Thunder O.

    I will think about going, but not making any promises, I don't like Halloween but it is a furry meet after all.
