Halloween Carnivals

Lakewood's traditional Halloween Carnivals offer fun and safety for youngsters on October's spookiest night.

Halloween Carnivals are held on October 31, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.at eight Lakewood parks, with game booths, special contests and prizes for the kids.

Four parks typically have a super-scary "haunted house" for little ghosts and goblins to venture inside (as long as health protocols allow). Each park has a special Halloween theme. Check the events calendar for details on this year's event. 

Support for the carnivals comes from community volunteers, civic organizations and Lakewood Tot Lot parents. Volunteers are needed to run carnival booths.
