Gum for days! Apr 17, 2015
Although you will get nothing out of visiting this , I think this shows the awesomeness of Seattle and how creative people get. Make sure to have a pack of gum before going here so you can add to the wall of gums there! This is just an extra thing to see as you walk along Pikes. Be careful not to touch the gum with your tongue as you try to get that cool picture! Be careful where you walk around the gum wall as well or else the gum gods will punish you with one of their practical jokes on your shoes

Delightfully Disgusting Aug 16, 2009
Outside of a theatre in Post Alley, people waiting in line for the movies began this strange tradition. Years of old chewing gum are caked onto the wall outside the theatre. But if you can get past the gross factor, it is a fun and amusing display of the creativity of Seattleites. Look closer and you will see a lot more than just gum. If you are already visiting Pike Place Market, it is worth the 5 minutes max it takes to peruse the gum wall. The last time I was there, a wedding couple was having pictures taken and another couple was waiting to have their pictures taken next. Apparently the spot is much more popular than I thought.

You could have given the couple a nudge into the wall then run before they dislodge themselves ! :D

I've always had an affinity for the Pacific Northwest, despite growing up in the Southeast. And there is no way to talk about the region without mentioning Seattle. I was shocked to find that it was …gum on the same wall! I think it's called "Love Happens." Anyhow, Seattle was a fun place to visit…
