“Trick or Streets” in Seattle are returning again in 2021 after the Seattle Department of Transportation says it was one of the department’s most popular programs from 2020.

Trick or Street Blocks in Seattle allow for socially distant Halloween

The Seattle Department of Transportation says you can apply for a free Trick or Street permit for Halloween celebrations in your neighborhood, or to celebrate Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos).

The permit allows neighborhoods to close their residential street to vehicles for safer trick-or-treating and community-building festivities. The street closures can last until 10 p.m.

Follow the instructions and guidelines to apply here. In the “Project Name” field, SDOT says to enter “Trick or Street” or “Day of the Dead” in order to be prioritized. Applications should be submitted by 5 p.m. on Oct. 15 for guaranteed timely review and approval, but applications will be accepted after that.

For those who live on a street already designated as a “Stay Healthy Street,” it’s even easier to host an event since your street already has barricades and street closed signs. No additional permits are needed to host a Trick or Street on an existing Stay Healthy Street, but you will need to follow the guidelines, and you can print out extra signs to let people driving by know about your activity.

Dr. Fauci says fine to trick-or-treat this year

Participants are encouraged to wear a mask and maintain six feet of distance from others.

Play Street and Block Party permits are also available to individuals, nonprofits, and community organizations throughout the year.
