LCFF is thrilled to bring back our 4th Annual “Music in the Mini Park”. This series funded in part through the City’s “Put Arts in the Park” initiative continues to attract great music and performers. While the venue may be a challenge, it is always inspiring to see people come out for these free concerts and watch as thousands of commuters realize that “Something is happening in Lake City”. Our sound wizard, Monica Sweet will be back in action and a big thank you to the Lake City Arts and Culture Committee member, Debbie Palmer, for creating the line-up. Don’t miss it!

Record Numbers of Kids and Families Turn Out for 25th Annual Trick-or-Treat Walk
The North Seattle Family Resource Center in partnership with LCFF saw a big uptick in local business participation for the 25th Annual “Lake City Fright Night and Trick-or-Treat Walk”. Over 30 business took part this year but the big surprise was the over 700 kids and parents that came out for the event to fill Lake City way with little princesses, pirates, witches, super heroes and beyond. It was amazing to see so much participation and to watch as the Lake City Mini Park became abuzz with families from all over the neighborhood.The Lake City Lions did another amazing job of transforming the community center into a fun filled party with pizza and treats and lots to look at.
On Sunday, October 29th the fun continues with the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Palooza at the Kaffeeklatsch. LCFF again teamed up with Kaffeeklatsch, the LC Farmers Market, Hunger Intervention, North Helpline and the Watershed to bring back this fun event where we provide healthy snacks and pumpkin decorating for the kids.
Over 700 Little Ghouls, Superheroes, Princesses & Pirates Descend Upon Lake City
Over 30 Lake City Businesses took part in the 25th Annual Trick-or-Treat Walk sponsored by the North Seattle Family Resource Center and LCFF. It was amazing to see LCW crowded with families on a gorgeous October evening. The turn out was more than we could have ever expected and was a sight to behold. Families had the opportunity to end the evening with the Lake City Lions at the LC Community Center for their annual “Fright Night Festivities” and some treats.
LCFF followed up the event on Sunday at the Kaffeeklatsch with partners; Hunger Intervention, EBB, Lake City Farmers Market, North Helpline and the Watershed Pub to hold the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Palooza. Volunteers from the businesses and organizations came together the night before to clean and prep over 100 pumpkins for the event. There was live music, healthy “Halloween themed” snacks, prizes and lots of creative pumpkin decorating going on. Big thanks to Annette and Brian from the Kaffeeklatsch, Chris with LCFF and Chuck Dickey from the Lake City Lions for procuring the pumpkins for this event and for kids at the North Seattle Family Resource Center.
