Have a creepy weekend: Halloween events for adults, teens and tots

If you’re into Halloween, it’s kinda nice when it falls midweek, as it does this year. (Next Wednesday, to be precise). Because then you have the whole weekend prior to prowl and howl.

Whether you’re a grown-up looking for 21+ fun, a teenager too old to trick or treat or a mummy (or daddy) looking to entertain your tot, we have lots of weekend suggestions for you:

ADULTS

Bars and nightclubs all over town have scheduled special spooky programming for the weekend and beyond. Here are a dozen shows of note, including a “Jai Ho! — ‘Thriller’ Party” and a Halloween Bash with Dyme Def, both at Neumos.

TEENS

Find a friend and head to the movies — you won’t believe how many scary-funny and just plain scary-scary movies are playing in and around Seattle this weekend. Many are classics; at least one is new and some are very, very cheap.

TOTS

If pumpkins, carnivals and hay mazes are more your family’s speed, check out this big list of events, including a whole section on Halloween. Or check out the pumpkin-carving parties at Bellevue Arts Museum and Seward Park.

ALL AGES

Everyone needs help with their costumes, right? You may want to take inspiration from the movies, as many Americans do, reports movie critic Moira Macdonald. Or check out what other Seattle Times readers are wearing or carving into their pumpkins via our reader-submitted photos. Finally, even if you’re a total Halloween Scrooge, you’re gonna love this gallery of pet costumes. Bow wow wowza.
