Why didn’t the skeleton cross the road? Because he didn’t have any guts.
Fortunately, you don’t need guts for the 22nd annual Children’s Halloween Parade. All you need is a costume, a sweet tooth and an escort for those under the age of 12.
Continuing our neighborhood’s great, ghoulish tradition, the Rockridge District Association (RDA) and the Rockridge Community Planning Council (RCPC) invite you to celebrate Halloween on College Avenue. From noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 27, participating merchants will host trick-or-treating along both sides of College Avenue, from Alcatraz to Broadway.
To join the costumed procession, meet at Halloween Central in front of the College Avenue Presbyterian Church, 5951 College Avenue, at 11:45 a.m. At precisely noon, we’ll kick off trick-or-treating, leading the first group along the avenue.
At 12:45 p.m., return to Halloween Central for spooky storytelling and silly, scary sing-alongs. A storyteller from the Storytelling Association of California will spin Halloween yarns in front of the church and a singer will serenade the crowds.
Don’t miss this holiday fun for kids of all ages.
You’re invited to come to church in a costume to get into the spirit that day.
We’ll also be giving out candy at our church front door.
Sign up online – or in person – if you’d like to help pass out the candy from 11:45-1pm, or if you would like to donate some candy to our efforts. This is a great way to interact with neighbors and Oaklanders who we might not normally encounter.
