Family Events Planned for Both Wilmington and San Pedro on Saturday, Oct. 29

SAN PEDRO, Calif. — On Saturday, October 29, from noon to 3 p.m., bats, ghouls and others are invited to enjoy free carnival-style games, crafts, music, face painting, storytelling and more at two locations. In San Pedro, the festival will be on the Promenade adjacent to Harbor Boulevard, between 3rd Street and 5th Street.  Our new festival site is the Wilmington Waterfront Park located at 604 West “C” Street in Wilmington. The event will take place at the West Plaza Pavilion, near C Street and Wilmington Boulevard.

Sponsored by the Port of Los Angeles, both festivals will feature Radio Disney and the Franklin Haynes Marionettes. Radio Disney disc jockeys will be on hand to rock it out Monster Mash style with games, a creature sound contest and more. Everyone is invited to dress in costume for the festivities.  Collect candy with your little ones as you trick-or-treat from booth to booth or try your luck at one of the carnival-style games.

The Franklin Haynes Marionettes will perform at 12:30 p.m. in San Pedro and 2:00 p.m. in Wilmington with a free puppet craft activity directly following each show.  There will be free rides aboard the “Spooky” Red Cars in San Pedro for costumed guests. Free parking is available in San Pedro at Harbor Blvd and 5th Street near the Boys and Girls Club and in Wilmington curbside along “C” Street.
