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

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. ;)
