California Avenue to close Sunday for Halloween event

Halloween trick or treating to take over boulevard

Palo Alto's California Avenue will host the annual Trick-or-Treat & Halloween Carnival sponsored by Blossom Birth on Sunday, Oct. 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Palo Alto police have issued an advisory that California Avenue between Birch Street and Park Boulevard will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Families are encouraged to don their most inventive Halloween attire, while participants age 12 and under can go trick-or-treating at businesses along Cal Ave, take part in a costume competition judged by Palo Alto Mayor Karen Holman and march in a costume parade led by the Stanford Band.

The free event also includes dance performances, live kids' music by Andy Z, carnival games and other kid friendly activities.
