The 5 best Halloween parties in Seattle this weekend

Published On 10/30/2014 Published On 10/30/2014

Do you know what Friday is? It’s the anniversary of the day that Emperor Agustín de Iturbide dissolved the Congress of the Mexican Empire (that was a thing, apparently) in 1822. Oh, and it’s Halloween. And since there aren’t any sweet parties celebrating the first of those things, you better check out these…

FreakNight Festival

Friday, October 31st & Saturday, November 1st: FreakNight, one of Seattle’s can’t-miss fall events, is two-day dance party that promises to attract thousands of scantily/scarily clad... well, freaks to the WaMu Theater, where they’ll hear dozens of sweet DJs, including headliners Kaskade and TiĂ«sto.

PULSE Halloween Bash

Friday, October 31st: Pulse Ultimate Halloween Bash is bringing together “Seattle’s best party band”, Brand X, the sweet Seattle DJ, Funk Daddy, and thousands of costumed party guests (all competing for $4,000 in cash prizes). It all starts at 8pm.

Risque' Halloween Party at the Showbox Market

Friday, October 31st: It’s not like people need encouragement to wear sexy costumes on Halloween, but RisquĂ©'s Halloween Party is providing it in the form of an “interactive” sexy costume contest. There'll also be GoGo girls, palm and tarot card readers, and other adult-oriented entertainments starting at 8pm.

Seattle Halloween

Friday, October 31st: If you’d prefer to get dressed up while dressing up, you’ll want to hit the black tie-optional Bonza Bash Halloween 2014 Masquerade Costume Ball at Fremont Studios. Don't worry, those not in formal wear can compete for $10,000 in prizes, including a trip to Australia, starting at 8:30pm.

Friday, October 31st: Frolik, one of Seattle’s sweetest outdoor bars, is hosting Yelloween, a sweet Champagne costume party, on its fifth floor patio with some help from Veuve Clicquot starting at 7pm.

Waterways Cruises

Friday, October 31st: The most Seattle way to celebrate Halloween is… um, probably going as something that requires polar fleece, or on a three hour Lake Union/Washington Halloween Party Cruise, where in addition to music and costume contests, there'll be nosh like Ghoulish BBQ Sliders w/ tomato jam, cheddar & caramelized onions.
