31st October 2009:Halloween Haunting
on October 31, 2009
Happy Halloween OaklandNorth!
With the Bridge still down we’re expecting Halloween to be big in downtown Oakland this year, and we’re not the only ones. Safety is high on the agenda, with Oakland police officers and American Emergency Response teams due to be stationed at busy intersections across the city to help children safely reach their trick-or-treating destinations.
Studio one is putting on a Halloween House Party at 365 45th Street at 6pm tonight. Yes, we are assured this does include a haunted house and face-painting. Call for more details: 510-597-5027.
There’s also a Thrillerthon happening at 1807 Telegraph. This will celebrate Haitian Day of the Day, with Caribbean dancing as well as DJ Epic and DJ Mpenzi. Come from 8.30pm and buy your tickets at the Den’s door ($5 before 10pm, $10 after).
Tomorrow if you’re still not finished celebrating, try Greater St Paul Baptist Church who will be throwing a community festival to celebrate All Saints Day. The carnival will be from 3 – 9pm at 1827 Martin Luther King Junior Way.
And one last thing to remember in amongst all that gallivanting – don’t forget the clocks go back tomorrow.
