If you are looking for something to do to celebrate this Halloween, Downtown Bellevue is certainly not at a loss of events to take part in:

Vertigo Halloween Bash
Vertigo Lounge & Grill, the newly opened hot spot in Bellevue will celebrate Halloween a day early on the 30th. Vertigo’s Halloween bash is a costume party; so don’t be caught without being dressed up to this event. The event starts just before 8pm, and costs $15 at the door.

Halloween Family Fun Fest
Looking for something a bit more family centric? Bellevue Square is hosting Trick or Treating inside the mall for children starting at 5:30 until candy runs out! Other activities such as a Mad Science booth, free pictures inside of Halloween decorated photo booths, arts and crafts booth, and more will be available on Wednesday evening.

Maggiano’s Little Italy’s Jack-o-Lantern Jubilee
Right across the street at Lincoln Square’s Maggiano’s starting at 4:30pm the restaurant will be hosting the viewing of the winning pumpkins from Jack-o-Lantern Jubilee.

Trick or Treat on Main Street
A couple of streets down on Main Street will be treat or treating for children from 4pm-6pm. Retailers on Main Street will participate handing out goodies to children dressed up in Halloween Costumes.

There is something for everybody in Downtown Bellevue this year, don’t miss out on the fun!


  1. $15?!? Wow, I wonder if anyone will show up for that. Vertigo is okay but I wouldn’t pay cover to go there…

  2. Maggiano’s event looks interesting.

    I’d like to see some other type of party’s next year more adult related!

  3. Trust me…people are showing up to Vertigo tonight. There are guests even headed in from Seattle. Hot girls, tiny costumes…people will be there.

  4. Did anyone go to Vertigo’s bash? I am curious how it went… especially with the building having no water last night. I noticed quite a few people leaving around 2am so I figure it was successful.

  5. Yeah, I went. It was pretty packed…I’m sure they reached maximum capacity at one point. People had a lot of cool costumes. It was fun!

  6. If anyone is going to Bel Square tonight, post back here afterwards and tell me if it’s still 80% Indian / Asians there.

    I just think it’s interesting that Bel Square is 80% white around Xmas, and 80% Asian today.

    Anyone know why this is?

  7. I don’t know why it matters…I beg to differ. 24% of the students at BELLEVUE High School in 2006-2007 were Asian, and 35% of NEWPORT High School in Factoria were Asian. Open your eyes and your mind.

  8. B.Square was packed. My first time working there on Haloween. Last year there was supossedly 2000 kids!!

  9. To the anonymous poster making the reference about the Indian/Asian shoppers on Halloween, are you trying to imply that these ethnic groups are cheap and are going there for the free candy?

    Bellevue is more ethnically diverse than Seattle these days, if you have a problem with that then I suggest you leave.

  10. I noticed that a new Asian fusion restaurant is opening at the Courtyard Marriott. I hope its better than Zen, I ate there last weekend and was not impressed at all.

  11. I was impressed with Zen. You can tell they are still fine tuning the service but the food was excellent. The 20% “Opening Discount” didn’t hurt either. But I am also excited about this new Asian place at the Courtyard. Can’t have enough good places to eat in the neighborhood.

  12. “are you trying to imply that these ethnic groups are cheap”

    nope, but you did. It must be what you think of them…

    My personal feelings are that all the little white kids are doing home parties / neighborhood trick or treats, or church sponsored events, and the immigrants go to the mall. I was just seeing if anyone had other ideas.

    To the poster above, if 35% of kids at Newport are Asian, then you would think that the mall would be not more then 35% Asian on Halloween, but it’s not. Which is why I brought it up in the first place.
