Trick or Treat in Long Beach!
There’s really no trick to finding treats for the kiddies this Halloween. Not with multiple organizations and businesses in Long Beach offering multiple ways, and days, for kids to land some candy in unique, fun, safe environments. Here’s some options for the upcoming Halloween weekend that’ll ensure your kids’ trick or treating is a sweet experience.
LONG BEACH TOWNE CENTER
The Towne Center’s (7575 Carson Blvd.) free Halloween Spookfest happens Friday, October 28 from 5-7 p.m. and features a lot of family-friendly entertainment, including a Halloween-themed stilt walker available for selfie photo ops! There will also be lots of trick-or-treat candy stations, airbrush tattoo artists, balloon twisters, kids crafts and DJs spinning some fun Halloween-themed music.
FAIRFIELD FAMILY YMCA
On October 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Fairfield Family YMCA (4949 Atlantic Ave.) will host a Family Trunk or Treat event, and no, that’s not a typo. Trunk or Treat events are a twist on traditional trick or treating, where vetted volunteers decorate their vehicles and open up their trunks full of treats in a safe environment for kids to enjoy a supervised Halloween. Not only will there be treats and a costume contest, but those handing out treats from their vehicles will be eligible to win prizes for their trunk design. There will also be arts and crafts, music, dancing and free food.
