Halloween is always synonymous with creative costumes and freaky activities, and Pet Cemetery at Fremont Foundry completely embodied what makes Halloween one of the best holidays.
Upper Left and The Good Vibe Tribe joined forces to bring an event that was truly unique and full of ghoulish Halloween behavior. Located at Fremont Foundry, the four-story building was set up to delight the senses. From an on-sight food truck, to three bars, some spooky light shows and plenty of outdoor covered smoking areas, the set up ensured there was no reason to leave the event throughout the night. A good thing, considering no re-entry was allowed.
After an easy entrance line attendees were greeted with classic halloween decorations and string lights warming the chill in the air. Our favorite part of the event was the fundraiser dedicated to raising money for local non-profits PAWS and Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. Attendees could take photos with quite possibly the cutest puppies in all of Seattle while supporting an important cause. Cash or card donations were accepted and all animals were available for adoption. In a city that is well-versed in raves and festivals, it was refreshing to see production companies raising money for local charities in such a fun and unique way.
The two stages were located on the first and fourth floor of the building. Cashmere Cat, Motez, and Catz n Dogs graced the first floor main stage while FooFou, Bgeezy, Lost Boys and Pressha brought high-energy to the fourth floor. The coat check took credit cards while all the bars were cash only. Drinks were also very reasonably priced.
While many aspects of the event were executed flawlessly, there were some areas that needed improvement. The main stage was just not equipped to handle the music. The sound reverberated off of the cement walls, which made it challenging to appreciate the DJs on the main stage. The fourth floor stage, cleverly named The Attic, was much smaller and the sound quality was much better. The staff was very helpful and friendly, but it took us 45 minutes to find a band aid.
All attendees had a smile on their face, and it was great to see unique costumes. While there are many Halloween activities to choose from, Pet Cemetery is a guaranteed memorable experience. We are excited to see future collaborations with Good Vibe Tribe and Upper Left.
