A beloved family event, Halloween In The Village is back this year, presented again by C3, Carlsbad Causes for Community.
The nonprofit organization will host the free event — which was once city-funded but is now led by C3 — on Oct. 29 at its headquarters, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op beginning at 2 p.m.
Trick-or-treating continues through 6 p.m. and the C3 Fun Zone will feature live music by teenage rock band The Elements, a jump house, face painting, hula hoops and cotton candy. Guests will be given a trick-or-treat bag and a map that highlights all of the generous merchants that will be giving out treats.
To add to the festivities, there will be a costume contest for the cutest, funniest and scariest costume. Trick-or-treaters should check-in at 2:15 pm to enter the contest, and winners will be selected at 3 p.m.
“We are so proud to be hosting the fourth annual Halloween In The Village,” C3 Founder Deb Ferraro said in a news release. “It’s really wonderful how many businesses in The Carlsbad Village unite as a community to help our community.”
Homelife Village Realtors is the presenting sponsor and thanks also goes to Brubaker and Associates, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op and Carlsbad Counseling Center.
C3 is a nonprofit consisting of local businesses, other nonprofits and Carlsbad residents who collaborate to raise money for various community causes by putting on programs and events around The Carlsbad Village.
Next month, it will host its C3 Village-wide Food Drive to benefit Got Your Back San Diego.
