Join the Family Fun at Redwood City's Halloween Spooktakular

Redwood City, CA - October 17, 2003 - The fall season is here, and as the nights get colder and the leaves start to change color, children’s thoughts are turning to Halloween! And with Halloween comes Redwood City’s 7th annual Spooktakular event, taking place on Saturday, October 25 from 11 am until 3 pm at Red Morton Community Center, 1120 Roosevelt Avenue in Redwood City.

Kids will thrill to carnival games, proudly show off their Halloween attire in a costume parade, create Halloween mementos with crafts projects, and enjoy lots of other fun activities! Redwood City’s Halloween Spooktakular is suitable for kids up to age ten. The public is invited to bring the kids and enjoy tons of Halloween fun in a safe, creative, and festive atmosphere.

What a great way to spend some quality Halloween time – and your admission ‘fee’ will go to a great cause. Just bring a non-perishable food item, or a $1 donation, which will go to the Fair Oaks Community Center Holiday program. For those who want to try surviving the "Monster Maze" a $2 admission is charged, with the proceeds going towards the "Gabriel Scholarship Fund" enabling youth in our city to participate in recreation activities. 

The Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department provides recreational facilities and activities for all ages and interests, and supplies building and custodial services for City buildings. Redwood City Parks also operates the Fair Oaks Community Center, providing social, educational, and cultural activities, as well as information, referral, and counseling services to persons living in Redwood City and neighboring communities. Redwood City Parks is more than you think! Its website is located at
