PHOTO ESSAY: T’Challaween 2021 — Another Outstanding Celebration of the South End!

by Emerald Staff


After weeks of hiding stubbornly behind gray skies and frequent downpours, the fall sun lit up north Beacon Hill in a golden brilliance for the second-annual T’Challaween parade on Saturday, Oct. 30. 

This year, the South Seattle Emerald’s signature event “T’Challaween — A South End Tribute to Our Heroes” saw even more impressive turnout than its debut last year. Community turned out in droves in stellar costumes to catch candy and celebrate South Seattle.

The T’Challaween 2021 costume parade started again on the Beacon Hill Stay Healthy Street at South College Street but this year ended at Jefferson Park where festivities continued with live music and entertainment. The Emerald partnered with the Artist’s Way to livestream the event. Artist’s Way founder Shaina Shepherd cohosted the stream along with Nikki Barron, and they brought local performers like Da Qween, The Pazific, and Smokey Brights who made beautiful music in the sunny park for live audiences and those who couldn’t attend in person. The livestream was produced by Blazin’ Space, kittenteeth, and Ground Control Recording.

The South End Public Market — a project of Beacon Arts — also set up shop in the park. Hyper-local artists and craftspeople sold their goods, from lovely jewelry to charming crocheted creatures and ink-printed artwork. You can catch the South End Public Market again on Saturday, Nov. 20, at Day Moon Press, one block south of Jefferson Park on Beacon Avenue South.

The success of T’Challaween 2021 was made possible with generous support of sponsors: The Station, Beacon Arts, Boon Boona Coffee, Amy’s Merkato, Victrola Coffee, Jefferson Advisory Council, the ACLU-WA, Alaska Airlines, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and Safeway.

We look forward to celebrating with you all again next year, South End heroes!
