Due to poor air quality forecasted, some of these events may be canceled and we are unable to confirm plans for each of the organizations.
Thanks to Berkeley's Fourth Street for sponsoring our Halloween Events Guide this year. The Trick or Treating session they host is a fabulous addition to our round-up of things to do with kids on Halloween! They decorate the whole street and welcome all costumed kids to trick or treat at over 80 merchant shops. Delaware Street will be closed so that the community can enjoy a Halloween festival with live music, scary hair booth, bubble show, face painting and story time with a costumed Cat in the Hat!!

Kids so pleased with their costumes they want to wear them more than once? Here is a round-up of Halloween activities and outings where Jedi Knights and Cleopatra will be more than welcomed.
