14th Annual Temescal Trick or Treat

Thursday, October 31st
4-6PM

Kids of all ages and parents, come and stroll Telegraph Ave and collect treats from local merchants. Start at The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse and grab a halloween tote for all your candy, then head over to both Ruby's Garden Kidwear & Gift & Hawk and Pony for their costume contests, trick and treat your way down to Flying Studios for their family dance party, and enter the apple bobbing contest at Ancient Ways!

Come to Ruby's Garden and get your kids' photos taken to enter their annual Costume Contest. Photos will be posted to Ruby's Garden Facebook page so you can share with your friends and family.

Temescal Branch Library will have a table at 51st St with giveaway books, small prizes and candy. Plus storytime of not-too-spooky Halloween stories and songs!

Hawk and Pony is hosting a zero-waste, Earth-positive Halloween party as they transition to 100% reusable drink containers and sustainable to-go food boxes. Enjoy zero-waste candy and enter the "Nature theme" costume contest to win one month of free coffee!

Come try your skills at Ancient Ways for their apple bobbing contest at 4075 Telegraph Ave.
