Ghosts and ghouls have fun in Diamond Bar this Halloween

Ghosts and ghouls will have a very entertaining time this Halloween in Diamond Bar. From the youngest Frankenweenie to the oldest Frankenstein, the city has planned special events for everyone.

The celebration begins today, Oct. 25, with the annual Halloween Dinner Dance for monsters age 55 and older. The monster mash will take place in the Diamond Bar Center from 6 to 9 p.m.

The costume contest will highlight the best dressed vampires and ghosts.

Come to the library on Saturday to learn how to make a spectacularly spooky paper pumpkin bag from 2 to 3 p.m. This frightfully charming bag will be perfect for any trick-or-treaters.

This craft activity is for teens and adults. Supplies are limited.

The city’s popular Hall of Horrors will open Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 30-31, inside the Heritage Park Community Center.

The haunted house is now in 3-D, with blood curdling chills and thrills for those brave enough to enter. The scary tableaus come to life from 6 to 9 p.m.

Horror fans will love the winding maze filled with monsters and mayhem. This scare zone is NOT recommended for children under 8 and anyone faint of heart.

Admission is $5 per person, with a special 2-for-1 coupon available online at www.DiamondBarCA.gov/hauntedhouse for Oct. 30.

Cute scarecrows promise no tricks, but many treats for the little ones as the Fall Fun Festival

rolls out in Heritage Park.

Little boys and ghouls will enjoy this safe alternative to treat or treating from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. The city has planned many family activities, including games, arts and crafts.

The whole family can dress up in their Halloween costumes for this night out on the town. Admission is free, but activities require a $5 game/craft card.

A grand masquerade ball for tweens will take place in the Diamond Bar Center on Friday, Nov. 2, from 7 to 10 p.m. The gala event is sponsored by “DB4Youth In Action,” the City’s teen group.

The dance is open to Diamond Bar students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Signed parent permission forms are required. These are available at City Hall, Diamond Bar Center and all middle schools.

Admission is only $5 a student. Snacks, photos and glow sticks will be sold, with proceeds benefiting DB4Youth.
