Haunted Factory Tour
If you’re already in the Halloween spirit, Seattle Chocolate’s Haunted Factory Tour is a perfect blend of sweet and spooky. At the Tukwila factory, you can help cast an evil spirit from the factory floor with the help of Ixcacao, the goddess of chocolate. The tour will be filled with chocolatey goodies and runs just 20 minutes, making it great for families with young kids. The tour is available two weekends only — October 17-20, and 24-27 – from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 for children, $12 for adults, and can be found on the Seattle Chocolate website.

And if you’re looking to add a furry friend to your family, the Adams County Pet Rescue also will have adoptable animals on site. Admission is free. Find more information here.
