October 2021

October in the Pacific Northwest dazzles, so we encourage you to get out with the kids to enjoy the signature seasonal attractions that abound around the sound, from pumpkin patch prowls and haunted houses to farm festivals and unique holiday events

This year marks the 114th birthday of beloved Pike Place Market — and the 50th anniversary of the successful community-driven effort to save it from the wrecking ball in 1971. Pike Place Market has plenty of fun planned to welcome families back to the market in celebration of survival.

We expand further on the theme of community and iconic Pacific Northwest culture in our feature, Exploring Native Seattle. And we also introduce you to the stunning talent of Coast Salish visual artist Paige Pettibon, whose murals adorn the walls at the newly opened Kraken Community Iceplex.
