Over 1,000 holiday carolers and over forty caroling teams will swarm the streets of Seattle Friday night for the annual Figgy Pudding caroling competition. The sing-off raises money for the Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank.

The top caroling teams compete for crowd favor and prizes for the most donations raised, best choral performance, most creative team and people's choice. Christie Johnson caught up with some of those teams for a sneak peek at what people can expect.

Traffic note: Road closures for Figgy Pudding will affect traffic in the area Friday night:

Friday 6pm - 7:30pm
Closed: 5th Ave from Olive to Pike
Closed: Pine from 7th to 4th
 
Between 4th & 5th (street in front of the tree) will be closed until the police feel like people have dissipated enough, usually around 8:45pm.
