Running Springs Community Fun at Annual Halloween Romp

The beautiful Queen of Hearts.

The always-fun and terrifically successful Halloween carnival in the  parking lot between the Robert Hootman Senior Community Center and Charles Hoffman Elementary School was filled with excited children and adults with the  elementary school’s PTA sponsored Fall Festival took place on Saturday, October 25.

I’m guessing that there were at least 150 children and their parents having wayyyyyyyy too much fun. The children and a  lot of PTA parents as well as local firefighters and representatives of local organizations and businesses seemed to be having the time of their lives. Each year  this event is always so much fun and it’s a toss up about who has more fun: the children or their parents.

Colorful Containers of candy sit in Hootman Center before the annual event began. I wonder how much was left...I'm betting not much!

In one form or another this celebration has been held at the school (or close to the school) literally for decades and one of the wonderful aspects of it is the continuation of the long-time tradition.

The hilarious "toilet paper" toss was so much fun. The target? Well, a toilet bowl, of course. Great fun!

It's always fun to see the costumes the children wear and you can tell that this colorful costume and wig were just what this cute girl loves!

A big “thank you” to all the people involved and to the school’s PTA and all the vendors or those who manned the colorful booths and helped make this festive occasion more memorable. A big “Thank You” to the Golden Oaks who welcome the children and adults if they stop in at the center.

Having a good time? You don't even need to ask!
