Seattle University teams up with Seattle Police for Yesler Terrace Halloween Community Festival

Children in the Yesler Terrace community are in for a surprise at this year’s Halloween festival, when Seattle University Men’s Basketball Coach Cameron Dollar, his entire team and Seattle police officers will join them for pumpkin carving. Officers from SU’s Department of Public Safety delivered 75 pumpkins to the center earlier this week, in preparation for the annual celebration.

Aside from the pumpkin carving, the festival will include: a haunted house, games, face painting and of course, lots of sweet treats!

The event is free and for all ages.
