The Fright Night haunted house from 2012

The Fright Night haunted house.

It’s that scary time or year again! And once again, neighborhood organizations are stepping up to provide some fun —and fright— to trick-or-treaters.

The Children’s Home Society of Washington’s North Seattle Family Center and the Lake City Lions have teamed up for the 22nd annual Fright Night.

This event is fun for the entire family, especially children ages 2 to 12.

The walk takes place 5:15-6:15 pm.. You can begin the walk and pick up a map and treat bags at CHSW’s North Seattle Family Center (2611 N.E. 125th St., Suite 145 in the Lake City Professional Building) or Lake City Court Computer Lab (12536 33rd Ave. N.E., Seattle).

The walk ends with the Fright Night Party from 6:30-8 pm. at the Lake City Community Center (12531 28th Ave. N.E., Seattle). Sponsored by the Lake City Lions, the party includes games, food, crafts, costume contest, prizes and a haunted house.

Lake City Tree Lighting moves to Lake City Community Center

Xmas treeYes, you read it right. Our annual tree lighting, our Union Bank 7th Annual Tree Lighting, will be held at Lake City Community Center instead of the Lake City Mini Park. There will be cookies, cider and coffee, caroling, music and of course, Santa!

We are looking for a throne-like chair for Santa. You may have one in your attic or garage! If so, and if you would be willing to part with it, please give us a call. (We have an offer from Doran’s Upholstry to give Santa’s throne a face lift.)

Please put it on your calendar now:  December 3, 7 PM, Lake City Community Center, 12531 28th Avenue NE.
