Halloween full spectrum

By weeklyvolcano on October 31, 2008


Church-of-Hate The evolution of Halloween is a tragedy of modern times. No longer can parents stick their kids in black costumes and send them off into dark streets unattended, armed only with a pillowcase and a burning desire for sugar. But this does not mean our country’s future leaders have to spend their childhood earning their Smarties by trick-or-treating in the mall. Instead, send Junior to the Children’s Museum of Tacoma for its all-day Halloween Howls program loaded with Halloween activities.  Then gather up the tykes and motor over to the Proctor District businesses for the traditional, safe Proctor Treats trick or treat event, 4-6 p.m.  Next, take the wacked-out kiddies home, calm them down, tuck them in with a kiss, throw on your Zamboni driver costume and head to Hell’s Kitchen for the Church of Hate show.
