Halloween Carnival

2020 Halloween Carnival Cancelled 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Halloween Carnival at the Community Center is cancelled. In lieu of the Carnival, the Recreation and Parks Department is holding a Halloween Scavenger Hunt and Halloween Pop-up activities. 


Halloween Pop-Up


The Falls Church Recreation and Parks Department is excited to you have you join us for our Halloween Pop-Up. Enjoy Pumpkin Painting, Birdhouse Painting, or Scarecrow Making at three different City of Falls Church parks on Saturday, October 31. 

Registration for City of Falls Church residents opens online with Webtrac on Tuesday, October 13 at 8:00 a.m., and non-residents on Monday, October 26 at 8:00 a.m. Registration is required for each activity. We ask that families only sign up for one activity to allow more families/households to participate. The activities are for children ages 1-13.

To ensure the health and safety of our staff and participants, each activity will be hosted at a different park and each time slot will be limited to 10 participants. Work space will be socially distanced and masks will be required for all who attend (but costumes are encouraged!)
