    This is my first Halloween in Seattle, & this sounds like a great way to spend it! Halloween is my favorite holiday.

    Two jobs+school+seven year old+nagging fiancé = one cranky lady! One night for me full of fun would be a dream come true.

  3. Brandon October 15, 2014 at 10:47 pm #

    So far this is the coolest Halloween party I’ve heard of in Seattle. Sign. Me. Up!

  4. Rachel October 15, 2014 at 10:58 pm #

    I’m designing and sewing costumes for both myself and my super sexy partner–we need somewhere to go in them!

    I’m designing and sewing costumes for both myself and my super sexy partner–we need somewhere to go in them–and a boat could be the place!

  7. Tina October 16, 2014 at 8:50 am #

  10. Jasmine October 16, 2014 at 2:22 pm #

    This sounds amazing! I’ve never had a chance to do a Seattle cruise, and with Halloween being my favorite, what better time to fix that!?

  11. Liz October 16, 2014 at 2:23 pm #

    B/c my fiancee and I will have the best costumes ever for the COSTUME CONTEST!

  12. Dawn Kaestner October 16, 2014 at 2:36 pm #

    I will feel safer on a boat because zombies can’t swim!

  13. Elly October 16, 2014 at 2:45 pm #

    Halloween is my favorite and I would love to get dressed up and go to this!

  14. dorothy spitzock October 16, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

  15. Brian Hamill October 16, 2014 at 3:08 pm #

    Haven’t been to a Holloween Party in ages. Would be nice to get back into the habit in style!

  16. Heather S October 16, 2014 at 3:08 pm #

    I missed out on Halloween fun last year, so dressing up for a party on a boat seems like a great way to make up for that!

  17. Chelsea October 16, 2014 at 3:42 pm #

    Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love making my costume each year and the best part is knowing how awesome my costumes tend to be. But, I need the best event to go to so that I can show off my amazing costume. Please let me win, so that I can show off my costume…I like to keep it a surprise, like a present.

  18. Robert R October 16, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    I have always really enjoyed Halloween and have always wanted to go a cruise of the Sound. Being able to do both at the same time would be an absolute thrill! Please choose me as the recipient of the tickets to this event!

  19. Daria Brockliss October 16, 2014 at 4:32 pm #

    Halloween is my favorite holiday. I would love to win tickets to this Waterways Halloween Cruise. We have yet to experience Seattle by water – other than by ferry to Bremerton – going away from the city! We don’t have any Halloween plans yet, and this sound super FUN!! :) My favorite song is Thriller by Michael Jackson, and who doesn’t love the Monster Mash! We love getting out and experiencing new things and unique events. This is different, and something that we would rave about for a long time to come! Thank you in advance for the opportunity to experience unique Seattle events.

  20. Michelle October 16, 2014 at 5:01 pm #

    I wanna dance with somebody! I wanna feel the heart with somebody! Pick me. My dance moves were made for this voyage.

  21. Melissa October 16, 2014 at 5:02 pm #

  22. Mary October 16, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    This is the Halloween prize to end all Halloween prize! What an amazing party this is going to be.

  23. Alison October 16, 2014 at 9:53 pm #

    I would love to win this. I had a nightmare of a summer being unemployed, being dumped, and just feeling horrible about myself. Now I have turned things around and just trying to live each moment to its fullest and make as many new memories as I can. This party sounds like fun!

  24. Farhan October 16, 2014 at 11:15 pm #

    What can be more fun than dressing up like Gilligan and going on a cruise?!

  25. Fabian October 17, 2014 at 12:34 am #

    For a sexy Halloween witch, there’s no better way to explore the city at night than by water & this way I can’t melt

  33. JoTray October 18, 2014 at 7:55 am #

    I have all these costumes and usually end up staying home and watching TV on halloween. this year I want to get out and have some fun.

  34. Grant October 18, 2014 at 12:36 pm #

    Sounds like fun for Halloween.

  35. Tina October 18, 2014 at 12:49 pm #

    Ready to bust out the spooky sexy! What would be better than celebrating the most fun holiday of the year on a cruise? What genius thought of combining Halloween with Seattle’s gorgeous lakes? Costume contest + themed drinks and eats + pumpkin carving on a boat = BEST HALLOWEEN EVER!

  36. tracy day October 18, 2014 at 2:29 pm #

    It would be fun to be a Vampire on a boat.

  37. Alyssay October 19, 2014 at 5:00 pm #

  39. Jowana October 19, 2014 at 7:38 pm #

    This is Halloween, this is Halloween
    Pumpkins scream in the dead of night
    This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
    Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
    It’s our town, everybody scream
    In this town of Halloween…..

    You know the rest… or at least I hope you do. :)

  42. Donyell October 20, 2014 at 10:51 am #

    I would love to win 2 tickets. I am a fan of your cruises and would love to attend this one. I’ve never been to an adult Halloween party nor have I ever won a Halloween contest. And I’d like to do both this year.

  57. Britt October 23, 2014 at 4:20 pm #

    What could be better than Halloween…Halloween ON A BOAT! So tickled by the kitschy food names and ready to get my Monster Mash on. Sounds like a great time!

  58. Tena October 23, 2014 at 4:38 pm #

    A cruise on Halloween would be amazing! This sounds like so much fun. I really want to experience it!

  59. Kim October 23, 2014 at 6:01 pm #

    Woooowwww! What better way to celebrate Halloween than on a cruise?! It would be absolutely spectacular being on the beautiful lakes of Seattle and partying in the best costume ever!!! Great idea, I would love to win tickets!

    Ps. I am a newbie in Seattle and this is my first Halloween here!! This party would top all my previous Halloween parties I’ve been to!

  60. Kelly October 23, 2014 at 6:36 pm #

  62. ayla October 23, 2014 at 7:45 pm #

    Halloween night will be the first time my lovely man and I will be reunited after a month. He works so hard repairing engines for army and navy ships and I work hard here in Seattle while waiting for him to come home. I think this would be an amazing welcome home present,Halloween is the best holiday! Plus I am from MT we don’t have anything like this back home!

  63. maria October 23, 2014 at 8:25 pm #


  64. Fabian October 23, 2014 at 9:36 pm #

    That sounds like a ton of fun!!

  65. Molly October 24, 2014 at 8:59 am #

    This looks amazing and what an excellent idea! I would love to join as I’m new to the area and do not know a lot of people. Also, I’ve never toured Lake Union or Lake Washington yet so what a great idea for my first time :)

  66. Clairica October 24, 2014 at 11:28 am #

    Did I miss my chance to enter this one!??!! Most likely since I am usually fashionably late! ;)
    Hopefully it isn’t too cold out for this one, looks like it is fun!

  67. JC October 24, 2014 at 2:52 pm #

    It seem only the Waterways bartender know how to make a proper drink, why wouldn’t I want to go on the Halloween Cruise.

  68. Jen October 25, 2014 at 12:28 am #

    I would love to win the tickets because, my best friend of 20 years and I have never been single at the same time. We are now, and headed up to Seattle for a amazing weekend….

  69. Erin Thompson October 26, 2014 at 12:26 am #

    This sounds awesome…such a cool way to experience Halloween!

  70. Michael October 26, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    My wife an I are Halloween addicts and fans of all things macabre! We’ve lived here for more than 20 years and NEVER had a chance to cruise on Lakes Washington or Union, nor had a chance to see the city from the water. This sounds incredible! Dancing and dining on the lake while wearing costumes and watching the sun go down on a wonderful October night! We would love to be graced with these tickets!

  71. Jamie October 26, 2014 at 10:30 pm #

    Help me show a friend he made the right choice moving to Seattle this month. I want to show him what the city has to offer. This would be ideal.

  72. Alix October 26, 2014 at 11:58 pm #

    Whoa, competition is stiff for this giveaway!? But my pegleg is stiffer and I’ll make these poopdeck-swabbers walk the plank! Well, no, I’ll mostly enjoy the tasty treats and swing my first mate around the dance floor. (I’ve got a pirate on option, if you haven’t guessed already). Pick me!

  73. Grace October 27, 2014 at 4:13 pm #

    it sounds really cool to have a halloween party on a cruise!
    I can enjoy the party and scenic view of Seattle!
    I am so excited to be there!

  74. Teresa Harrigan October 30, 2014 at 2:15 pm #

    I want to win tickets because Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year and this sounds like the coolest Halloween party ever!

  75. James October 30, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Nothing would be better than halloween on the water! This event looks amazing and my fiance and I would love to keep the boat rocking to the early morning. Thanks for all the great info of events going on around town, even if we don’t win any of the tons of free tickets you have helped us find something to do on our favorite holiday!

  76. John July 16, 2015 at 3:53 pm #
