Naked Pumpkins and Peoplekins Too

Get ready for the naked pumpkin people, Seattle

What is it with Seattle and getting naked? It’s not warm here, it’s not a
particularly nudist-friendly city — yet several times a year like clockwork,
people strip off their clothes and run (or ride bikes) through the streets.

This before-Halloween weekend will have plenty of nudity. And plenty of
pumpkins. Together.

Let me explain: The naked people will wear the pumpkins on their heads as they dash through two Seattle neighborhoods over the next few days.

There’s a daytime naked pumpkin run in Fremont at 11:11 a.m. on Saturday, and a nighttime run in the Greenlake neighborhood at 9:21 p.m Monday.

Feeling a little shy but still want to participate? Nudity is optional, organizers wrote online:

Go as bare as you dare! The event is clothing-optional, nudity is not mandatory. However, most people prefer to go nude or topfree, especially when considering the anonymity of wearing a pumpkin-head mask.

To find out where to meet up for the runs, you should be at the pumpkin-carving party Saturday.
