C3, Carlsbad Causes for Community, is holding its annual Halloween In The Village Saturday, October 29 at C3 headquarters, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op. This fun-filled event begins at 2:00 pm at the Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op and continues with trick-or-treating throughout The Carlsbad Village until 6:00 pm. It is a free community event for families and kids of all ages.
Halloween In The Village kicks off with the C3 Fun Zone where guests will be greeted with live music by The Elements, a teenage rock band, and enjoy 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 3:00 pm.
“We are so proud to be hosting the fourth annual Halloween In The Village!,” said Deb Ferraro, C3 Founder. “It’s really wonderful how many businesses in The Carlsbad Village unite as a community to help our community!”
The event is made possible in large part by the kindness of the sponsors: presenting sponsor, Homelife Village Realtors, and community sponsors: Brubaker and Associates, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op, and Carlsbad Counseling Center.
Once a city-funded event, Halloween In The Village is now led by C3, a non-profit consisting of local businesses, non-profits and Carlsbad residents who collaborate to raise money for various community causes by putting on programs and events around The Carlsbad Village.
Next month, C3 will host its C3 Village-wide Food Drive to benefit Got Your Back San Diego. C3 will be collecting peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, cans of tuna, and other easy to prepare items for hungry kids in North County.
