Get ColorFall at Periodic

Selfie stations, sweet treats, and gourds galore pop up in South Lake Union this month.

Want that perfect pumpkin selfie but aren’t too keen about the long drive and hordes of people that come with a local farm visit? Keep your fall adventures local this October and visit ColorFall at Periodic: A Pop-Up Shop. The new, free, no-reservations event features the best of the autumn season.

Visitors can enjoy displays of colorful pumpkins, fall gourds and multiple selfie stations that are all-age appropriate and accessible. You can get your influencer on at Periodic Monday to Saturday from 11am–7pm and Sundays from 12–5pm.

Plus, stop by each Saturday in October for some delicious free fall treats from Seattle Catering Company. You can enjoy snacks like hot cocoa, apple cider, pumpkin ice cream, and much more. Yard games will be available in the Nitro Plaza, too.

Speaking of games, Periodic will also host special giveaways all month long to celebrate the Seattle Kraken’s debut season. You could win commemorative hockey pucks, team apparel, lanyards, and more. To start, you need to follow Periodic on Instagram. On each Kraken game day in October, Periodic will post a story to its Insta feed that will give followers a special code word. Then, you visit the shop at the specific time frame noted in the post, say the special code word, and you’ll win a prize. Easy!

If you snap some sweet fall selfies at ColorFall this month, be sure to tag @southlakeunion on Instagram.
