Pasadena’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department is hosting a Giggles and Screams Block Party on Saturday, Oct. 29, 3 to 8 p.m. at La Pintoresca Park on Washington Blvd.
The event is free and open to the public.
The “Giggles” hours are from 3 to 5 p.m., and are designed for the little ones to enjoy and include a costume contest, trunk-or-treat goodies, trackless train rides, a Little Goblins play zone, and lights-on tours through the Scary Haunted House up to 5 p.m.
The “Screams” hours begin at sunset, when you can test your fright factor between 5 and 8 p.m. at the haunted house, if you’re 12 years old and older. There’s also a creepy clown train ride for all ages. Attendees will also enjoy family-friendly game booths, face painting, a photo area, and more. Food will be available for purchase.
