Play in the Street (safely) for Halloween!

Every child deserves a safe space to play, run and simply be a kid.

Sometimes urban environments don’t offer the necessary space for creative play. And that’s why SDOT’s Street Use Team created Play Streets!

This month, Play Streets introduces a special expedited permitting for Halloween. Instead of the usual 30-day turnaround, permits received by October 17 will be processed in time for Halloween. So this Hallow’s Eve treat your favorite ghouls and goblins to a festive celebration with friends and neighbors. Complete your application today!

In case you are not familiar with Play Streets, it’s a permitting program that closes a neighborhood street to traffic so kids and adults can have more space for play and physical activity. Since 2013, over 350 Play Streets permits have been issued in neighborhoods across Seattle.
