Celebrating Halloween Safely

Community Services is excited to share family-friendly, Halloween-in-Quarantine events, and activities!  While the festivities may look a little different this year, the fun (and candy!) is the same.  Both City events have been approved by the Humboldt County Department of Public Health. 

See the events and important information below:

From Recreation: Pumpkin Hunts at Sequoia Park, Cooper Gulch & 20/30 Park for ages 12 & under on Saturday, October 31st.  Visit the park closest to you, complete the pumpkin hunt and win prizes.  Wear a mask, social distance and come during the following times depending on your child’s age: 0-6 years old (11am-12:30pm), 7-9 years old (12:30pm-2pm) and 10-12 years old (2pm-3:30pm).  Please limit your experience to one park.
