CRES Halloween Happening fundraiser

The annual Halloween Happening takes place from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at Crystal River Elementary School, 160 Snowmass Drive in Carbondale. The event is open to the public and offers preschool- and elementary-school-aged children a ​safe, healthy and fun Halloween experience​.

While the kids are playing carnival games, making the rounds in the parking lot “trunk-or-treat” parade, burning off calories in the bounce houses (including a new jousting arena), or braving the haunted house at the Halloween Happening, adults can be chowing down on tamale plates, Peppino’s Pizza, and home-baked goods. If that’s not enough, there might also be a well-loved Carbondale principal in a gorilla costume.

There are various games for both preschool and elementary age children, and age-appropriate carnival games will be held in different areas of the school. In addition to the indoor activities, The Orchard is organizing a “Trunk-or-Treat” activity in the school parking lot where kids trick-or-treat from decorated car to car. The bounce houses are sponsored by Carbondale Family Dental, All Kids Dental, 20/20 Eyecare and Valley View Hospital. ​

Also new this year is the event location: It moves from the Bridges Center to CRES.
