Trick or treating at neighborhood businesses, Zoo’s Pumpkin Bash, ghost investigation at the PNA, folk music and more in Greenwood-Phinney this weekend

Plenty of Halloween-themed activities in the neighborhood this weekend. Check our Events calendar any time for more events.

Hunger Goblin’ Trick or Treat from 12-3 p.m. Saturday at dozens of businesses along Phinney and Greenwood avenues. Look for the Hunger Goblin’ poster in the window – or just follow the hordes or children. The event is free, but you also can buy a Hunger Goblin’ sticker for $2 and/or bring canned food to donate to our local food bank. Couth Buzzard Books, 8310 Greenwood Ave. N., will be giving away free children’s books instead of candy.

Woodland Park Zoo hosts its annual Pumpkin Bash from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with Halloween-themed treats for the animals; trick or treating for kids; indoor nature play space Zoomazium transformed into “Boomazium” with storytelling, costumed puppet shows and games; and the Rain Forest Food Pavilion will host Mad Science: A Dry Ice Extravaganza from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Washington State Ghost Society will talk about the Phinney Center’s past from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, at 6532 Phinney Ave. N.

Get into the Halloween mood by learning what researchers found in two visits to the Phinney Center. Investigators and mediums offer fascinating details of spirits they encountered as well as audio evidence caught on tape — knocks, voices and more.

Wonder how a medium contacts spirits? Or how otherworldly sound is recorded?

A Q&A session follows the presentation so bring your curiosity and an open mind.
