On Halloween each year from 5-8pm, a stretch of South Coast Hwy 101, from Encinitas Blvd. to K Street, is decorated with elaborately carved pumpkins at different viewing locations, downtown merchants hand out treats and the Queen will be granting wishes at the Queen’s Court next to the Self-Realization Fellowship Bookstore.
Safe Trick or Treat is sponsored by Scripps Health. Visit their booth at The Black Sheep parking lot at J Street.
The 101 Artists’ Colony sponsor a kids zone where children can enjoy games, music and activities at The Lumberyard Courtyard. Downtown merchants hand out candy in a tranquil, safe setting where tricksters of all ages have loads of fun.
The Self-Realization Fellowship grow and harvest the pumpkins on the hill above Vulcan, south of Santa Fe Drive. The monks of SRF carve them for the enjoyment of the community each year.
