The annual tradition of the RBCA Halloween Carnival continues but in a new and safe way. Join the RBCA and the City of Shoreline as we present the 2002 Halloween Car-nival, a haunted neighborhood drive around event. As with any good carnival there are different games to play and attractions to experience.
Download and print the Halloween themed coloring page. Cut it out, color it and hang it in your window. This is a simple way to show your community “spirit”.
Starting on October 10th and running through October 24. Pick up a free scavenger hunt passport at Beach House Greetings, Streetzeria and the RB Library, then make your way to 13 local businesses displaying a scavenger hunt sign. Have some fun hunting for those Halloween themed items listed in the passort. On Saturday, October 24 between 4 pm and 7 pm make your way over to the area near Syre Elementary school located at 9545 12th Ave NW. There will be a tent set up. Show the carnival volunteers your passport and receive a special Halloween prize. (Please note only 250 prizes will be given away. After that, the tent will vanish into the night.)

On Saturday, October 24 grab your “Cell-bones” and snap a fun family picture at one of our selfie tents. A harvest theme station will be located in front of the Children’s Fire Safety Center located at 1847 NW 195th St, and a haunted themed station will be on display in the parking lot of Vault 177/Spin Alley located at 1430 NW Richmond Beach Rd. Don’t forget to email your selfie to our Executive Director Teresa Pape at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put them up on social media.
Have your family “carve out some family time” creating Jack-o'-lanterns and on Saturday, October 24 drop them off at the Kruckeberg Boo-tanical Garden drive through located at 20312 15th Ave NW. The pumpkins will be used for a boo-riffic garden display on October 30 and 31. When you drop off a pumpkin, sign up for a time to come back to visit the garden and collect a special face mask craft.
Explore the neighborhood searching for some of the most haunted (decorated) homes in the community. If you would like to add your home to the tour please contact Executive Director Teresa Pape at email@example.com before October 17. Tour maps will be available here by October 20.
The Halloween Carnival is sponsored by the Richmond Beach Community Association and funded in part by the City of Shoreline's Neighborhood Mini Grant Program.
