SLIDESHOW: Sights & Sounds From Burien’s Night Of The Pumpkin
This past Friday (Oct 22) ghosts, goblins and other spooky creatures of the night took over the community center and Dottie Harper Park to celebrate the “Night of the Pumkpin.”
This family-friendly event featured music, games, crafts and refreshments. Inside the community center, visitors could view “Day of the Dead” altars courtesy of the Highline Historical Society and take in a puppet show put on by Clay Martin. Those who chose to brave the chilly night air could enjoy spooky stories from Burien Little Theater while huddling around a warm fire in the park.
Officials from Burien Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services estimate that the crowd may have been as large as 500. Said Gina Kallman, Cultural Arts Supervisor, “I thought the event was amazing! The first big event at the new community center and Dottie Harper Park and the place was packed. So much fun watching the families have a good time!”
