Halloween in Downtown Kirkland wouldn't be the same without trick-or-treating at our local businesses! This Saturday 10/31/15 from 2-7 pm you'll find many of your local faves (and new ones too) participating. Kids under 10 need a parent with them. Sorry if that foils your plan to drink at Hector's while your 8 year old collects candy. ;-)
Merrill Gardens (14 Main St. South) is throwing a little shindig for the kiddies too. Local families are invited to visit the Kirkland retirement community for some Halloween fun on Saturday 10/31, 2:00-4:00 PM. This free event will feature fun activities, games, a magic show (3pm), and lots of treats for trick-or-treaters. For more information, call 425-828-2570
And let me just say that-yes, clearly, I have been avoiding the election and the political tornado that is spinning all around us. Check here or here for hours of passionate opinions from Kirklanders. I think Noah's Ark got built faster than we can figure out what the real story is on our ARC. And I'm curious to know who writes the little paragraphs on the ballots that explain what we are voting for? Do both sides agree on the verbage because they really tend to leave an impression for me one way or the other. And I don't know about you, but I am always relieved when someone is running unopposed- what fun it is filling in THAT little circle with complete confidence in my decision. So my two cents about politics is.... VOTE. You've got a say... use it.
