PHOTOS: ‘Night Of The Pumpkin’ Draws Costumed Characters Despite Weather
Friday night’s “Night of the Pumpkin” at the Burien Community Center drew overflow crowds of costumed kids intent on having fun despite the cool, damp weather.
Although we didn’t get a firm number, a conversation with Parks director Michael Lafreniere and supervisor Casey Stanley suggested that this was clearly a record-setting crowd for this event, now in it’s second year at the new Community Center.
The throngs of ghouls and goblins (and maybe one or two prince and princesses) even had staffers scrambling to do an emergency candy run as stocks dwindled.
BTB photog Michael Brunk was on the scene with his assistant Lindsey, snapping photos and even wrangling live tarantulas and snakes in the interest of providing coverage of local happenings.
He assembled the following gallery. You can click individual thumbnails for view full-sized photos.
