Richmond Beach Community Association’s 34th annual Halloween Carnival is a timeless tradition in our community. This year the event is being re-imagined for the new times, while keeping social distancing and health guidelines in place. Introducing the Halloween “Car”nival.

The “Car”nival is a drive through, public, event featuring lights, music, entertainment and activities that can be viewed and experienced from a car. We would describe it like the famous Candy Cane Lane in Seattle - only much smaller and Halloween themed. It is a reverse parade of sorts. The action stays in one place, while the cars move along the route.

The event will feature “Pumpkin Lane” and will take place through a parking lot. Drivers could choose to leave or continue towards the “Street of Screams” where the decorations and theming would be more representative of a haunted house experience.

Volunteers Needed

Volunteering is part of the culture in Richmond Beach. It is just what we do because we care about the bonds that strengthen our neighborhood, and we take pride in our community. Very few neighborhoods have that kind of community spirit.

Join the committee of enthusiastic volunteers who work together to make this fun event a reality each year for youngsters in our community! Contact Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeachwa.org for more information or to say, “I want to help with this new event.”

We also need adult volunteers to help move props/decorations to and from the storage unit and to help construct and tear down the two streets. Easily a hundred volunteers are required to successfully create this new attraction. Volunteers are needed to help set up, clean up, dress up, dance, direct traffic, and build sets. Set building begins over the summer and early fall. Youth are encouraged to volunteer with an adult to supervise, and community service hours can be earned by high school students.

DON’T HESITATE–PARTICIPATE! There are several ways to volunteer:

Contact Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeachwa.org to sign up. We need builders, painters, decorators, light hangers, traffic monitors, dancers, and more. This is an all new experience and we need lots of help and ideas to bring it to life.

Job Descriptions:

  • Months and weeks before the event, construct displays and paint backdrops. This is a great family friendly project.
  • Friday afternoon/evening, before the event, meet at the storage unit and help load the truck with props and displays.
  • Set up begins Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. This involves unloading the delivery truck, setting up the backdrops, decorating trees, hanging lights and props, and more.
  • During the event, traffic will need to be monitored, dancers and dress up characters will line the route.
  • Clean up involves taking down set pieces, taking down decorations, loading up the delivery truck. Any amount of time that can be offered is greatly appreciated! If everyone helps to dismantle the event at the end of the night it will go super-fast.
