Haunted Halloween happenings in Kirkland | Update
Aside from trick-or-treating, Kirklanders can celebrate Halloween in at least seven different ways this upcoming week.
Young children can enjoy the Pee Wee Monster Bash, while older kids and teens can scream their way through a haunted house.
The Howl-O-Wine Fundraiser will give dog owners the opportunity to spend time with their dog and enjoy a glass of wine or two.
And when the ghouls, monsters, witches, vampires and ghosts retreat, Evergreen Pediatrics will buy back candy in an effort to help families maintain their health after Halloween is over.
