First, let's give ourselves a high five because Money Magazine recently ranked Kirkland the 3rd Best Place to Live in the U.S. After this sunny October, I cannot disagree. And, of course, our community events make this an incredible place to be. Such as these coming up where there are plenty of treats for all ages :
Zombie Wine Crawl- Better hurry if you don't already have your ticket ($30) for Friday 10/21 to meander through participating local merchants in downtown Kirkland while sipping on wines and spirits at each stop. 5pm at The Heathman and costumes are encouraged. Always a good time.

Villains in the Village- Sat 10/22 11am- 1pm. This is a free event for all ages at The Village at Totem Lake (meet near Salt & Straw) where you can expect a wicked fun costume contest, craft station, caricature artist, fun photo ops, and meet/greets with some of the most nefarious and notorious villains. Costumes encouraged. Rain or shine (no registration needed).
Pumpkins in the Park- Get ready for this 3rd annual at Marina Park from 10-2 on Oct 29th. There's a pumpkin patch, a pet costume competition, a fall-themed selfie station, a petting zoo, a Blue Grass band, and even "Pumpkin Wars" (no, we don't get to throw them, boooo..) where enormous pumpkins will be carved. Don't forget the downtown merchant Trick-or Treating extravaganza from 1-2.
Treat Street at Kirkland Urban- Sat 10/29 3-7pm. After Pumpkins in the Park, roll on down to K-Urban for more seasonal celebrating. Treat Street will have live pumpkin carving, Halloween tunes, kids games & activities, a giant candy shoot, a live DJ, and tasty treats provided by local businesses.
