Fall-O-Ween

Wear your favorite costume and celebrate the changing of the leaves from your car with spooky scenes throughout an enchanted forest at Lake Julian. We'll also have goodie bags for the kids! Want to help transform the park? We’re recruiting local businesses, schools, clubs, organizations, families, government agencies, and individuals to help us set up some eerie sights for kids to enjoy. Picture witches stirring cauldrons while they practice social distancing, scenes from children’s books come to life, monsters emerging from the lake, skeletons playing volleyball on the sand court, swashbuckling pirates on our massive playground, etc. Do you have a mascot or massive truck? Bring them and wave to the crowd. Get creative! There is no cost to participate, but you must register by October 16. REGISTER HERE >.
