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.
