Submitted by the Event Organizer
Dress up the family and head to the Fourth Street shops in Berkeley for a Halloween festival.
More than 70 merchants on the street will hand out treats (edibles and non-edibles). Each participating merchant has a pumpkin at their door to show participation. In 2014, more than 1500 kids came.
Come and show off your outfit, trick or treat if you wish, play games and listen to music.
2018 Halloween Festival Activities
Free & Fun Festivities on Delaware at Fourth Street:
• Face Painting: Two artists are coming, so they hope the lines won’t be too long
• Scary Hair Booth: Professional stylists take a break from their regular clients down the street at the beloved Keter Salon to help out with creating scary hair a la spiders, worms and spray color
• Photo Booth: Andrea is owner/operator of Berkeley’s longtime local business PhotoLab; she will take your family pic then email it to you
• Art Booth: Come decorate a mask sponsored by the artisans at Castle in the Air
• Live Music: Kids and parents alike can’t help but sing and dance to the rhythm and blues of Bill Muccular from This Old Band, a festival and Fourth Street favorite
• Bubble Show: You’re invited to this expert bubble-smith back each year because he elicits the best crowd experience we have ever seen…small car sized bubbles float through the air, clouds of bubble foam might get you or stand still and he will put you in a bubble
• Cat in the Hat Story Booth: Best for the “littles” who might need a sit, the costumed storyteller will keep them happy
• Pet Parade: Meet at 2 pm at George (1824C Fourth Street) then parade to the Peet’s plaza with judging at 2:30 pm. There will be gift certificates for first, second and third place winners.
