La Jolla goes a-haunting for Halloween


On Saturday, kids of all ages paraded in costume and participated in contests for treats at the annual Kids’ Halloween Festival at La Jolla Rec Center, while others jumped into the festivities at the Shores Fall Family Fest. Hosted by La Jolla Shores Merchants, the fun included costume contests, bands, freebies and raffles.

On Monday afternoon students paraded in costume at the Upper Field of La Jolla Elementary School and wandered through the Village as the La Jolla Village Merchants Association presented the third annual trick-or-treating event, Pillage the Village. There was also a parade at Bird Rock Elementary

And Monday evening, Bird Rock and friends turned out for one of the largest Halloween happenings throughout the neighborhoods, including a jungle-themed haunted house on Bellevue Avenue put together with help from the La Jolla High School Interact Club.
