Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition
We All Want Some Figgy Pudding
Early in December, dozens of caroling teams brave the cold downtown Seattle streets for the annual Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition. Stroll through the blocked-off streets around Westlake Park, listen to local groups belting out holiday tunes, and vote for your favorite; the top-rated teams head to the main stage for the final showdown. The event is free, but consider dropping some cash into the donation boxes — Figgy Pudding raises funds for the Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank, providing free meals, groceries, counseling and other services to low-income and homeless neighbors in need. (Rest assured, no one actually has to eat figgy pudding.)
