We may not have masked balls or Old World costumed street carnivals in El Cerrito, but we do have the city's annual Halloween fest at the Community Center.
Grown-ups, children and even dogs can revel in disguise – and enjoy an indoor carnival, a haunted house and canine parade and costume contest.
The haunted house hours will be divided into two sessions: a non-scary version with lights on for little kids from 2:30-4:30 p.m., and and a scary one for braver souls from 5-7 p.m. Admission is $4.
And across the street in Cerrito Vista Park will be a dog parade and costume contest with prizes for creativity, attention to detail, representation of character, and cuteness/like-ability. Registration is $5 and may be done early at the Community Center or at the event at 4:30 p.m. The parade begins at 5 p.m.
The indoor carnival beginning at 2:30 p.m. will feature games and prizes, as well as food and beverages.
