As the decorations and costumes come out of the closet for Halloween, Alamedans have lots of activities to entertain themselves with.
This Saturday, October 24, for instance, Otis Elementary School is holding its annual fall carnival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on campus, 3010 Fillmore Street, next to Krusi Park.
The carnival will feature a haunted house and games, along with music performed by the Lincoln Band. There will be a costume parade and contest, kids’ obstacle course, cake walk, face painting, pumkin walk, as well as arts and crafts.
Tickets will be sold for the games and the haunted house, with proceeds going to benefit Otis school and students.
Next weekend, on Saturday, October 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Bay Farm Community Church at 3189 Mecartney Road on Bay Farm Island will celebrate fall with “Under the Big Top-Circus.”
The show includes wild cats, Red Panda acrobats and fire spinners. And there will also be face painters, uniciyclists, stilt walkers and a super slide. The cost of entry is $5 for kids and $6 for adults.
There will also be hot dogs, popcorn, and other treats on sale, as well as tickets for games and train rides.
Please comment on any other events that you know about going on in and around Alameda! Thanks.
