Halloween Carnival at Valley Plaza Park

The time has come again for the annual Halloween Carnival at Valley Plaza Park. Hosted by the City's Department of Recreation and Parks, our Council is helping to support the event again this year.

With games and prizes and events for kids of all ages, the Carnival is a beloved tradition for our neighborhood. There will be games, prizes, treats, a costume contest, and bingo. The event lasts until 8PM to save time for some late trick-or-treating or other Friday night activities.

Volunteers are also needed. Contact Patrick Evans, Coordinator, at 818 765 5885 for more information or to help out. And see some of the Board Members from the Council as well. We'll be there helping out and to talk to you about government in the community.
