Halloween is just around the corner! It’s time to find the perfect costume and hit the streets of Venice for a weekend full of ghouls, goblins, and spooky adventures. If you still need to carve a pumpkin, you can find all sorts of shapes and sizes at the Grace United Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch. Once you have your Jack-O-Lanterns carved up, get the kiddos ready to march down Venice Avenue for the Annual Children’s HalloweenParade. The crowd begins to gather at Centennial Park at 4pm on Halloween. While the whole family is out enjoying the fall festivities, don’t forget about your four-legged monsters at home! Take your pooch out on November 1st for the Howl n’ Halloween Pet Costume Parade & Fair. There will be plenty of activities for the whole family, including doggy trick or treating, face painting, music and more! The event will take place at Blalock Park at 9:00am. Have a great Halloween and remember to be safe!!
