Prepare for an evening of skelefun at this year’s free Halloween Carnival! Temecula’s annual event will be taking place in Old Town on Friday, October 29, 2021 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. There will be carnival games and spooktacular activities throughout Old Town. The main attractions will be stationed in Town Square Park (41000 Main Street) and remember to check out the Temecula Valley Museum (28314 Mercedes Street) for additional fangtastic fun.
Enter the costume contest on the front steps of City Hall, play a round of monster toss in Town Square Park and make your way down to the Temecula Valley Museum to explore the giant spooky maze.
Carnival attendees can even trick-or-treat along the way! Visit our First Responders at the Police Substation and Fire Station 12 on Mercedes Street. Old Town Merchants are also encouraged to pass out candy to the witches and goblins of Temecula. Please visit TemeculaCA.gov/Events the week of the carnival for a list of participating businesses. You will not want to miss out on this free event!
Temecula Mayor Maryann Edwards states, “We are thrilled to once again provide safe and just “a little spooky” family fun at Temecula’s wildly popular annual Halloween Carnival. This year, the party’s coming to beautiful Old Town, with games and contests in store for all who dare to play! Our children loved this fun, fantasy-filled Temecula family tradition and it’s so fun to see our grandchildren loving it too!”
City Councilmember and Temecula Community Services District President Zak Schwank commented, “This event is all about safe, family-fun and I am excited to add the element of the proximity to Police and Fire Stations in Old Town Temecula. Additionally, as a previous judge in the Costume Contest at our annual Halloween Carnival, I have seen some amazing creativity from our residents over the years. I am looking forward to seeing the unique, funny, and spooky costumes on the steps outside City Hall!”
