Holiday Events in Green Lake: Halloween and Looking Ahead to Nov and Dec

October 18, 2016 6:00am


I’m still in shock that it is almost Halloween. But other Greenlakers are way more on it than I am. I’ve had a few emails asking about holiday events so I’ve included some halloween events as well as holiday events in November and December. The holiday season is upon us Greenlakers!

Halloween events

Thursday October 20 5-8 p.m.
Green Lake Shelter Lounge is hosting a Family Pumpkin Carving Night.
You bring the pumpkin and leave the mess. All ages. Grab a drink, dinner and carve those pumpkins.

Saturday Oct. 29 11 a.m.

One of our favorite events of the year is the annual Corgi costume walk around Green Lake Park.
Meet near the rowing stands where they take a group picture and then they release the hounds for a loop around the Lake, which let’s be honest, for corgis is like a marathon!
Small Craft Center:  5900 West Green Lake Way N, 98103

Halloween Costume idea

And, because I have a toddler that is OBSESSED with recycling trucks, I’m going to put this how to make a recycling truck costume idea from Waste Management right here.

November 1st from 11am-6pm

And if you find that your house is getting weighed down with candy, Best Dentistry, a local dental office, is putting together a Halloween candy buy back program where all unopened candy will be purchased for $1 a pound and then sent to Operation Gratitude, that makes care packages for US Military members serving around the world.  The event will also include prizes, photo booths and gift bags for all kids who attend. Check out their site for more information.

Sunday November 20 8 a.m. 

Green Lake Gobble

Event starts at 8 a.m. and includes a Kid’s dash, 5k and 10 k run/walk and a mashed potato munch off. Normally people dress up for this event and its a lot of fun to cheer them on as they come through the finish line. This event is a benefit for the Union Gospel Mission.

For more info go to the Green Lake Gobble page.



December 10 from 4:30 – 7:30pm

Green Lake Pathway of Lights

Rain or shine this event is a must. Luminaries are set on the path around the Lake while carolers sing and hot cocoa stations pump out warm cups of cocoa. For more info, check out their Facebook page.
