Princesses, pirates, ghosts, goblins, superheroes, cartoon characters and everything in between are invited to the 25th annual Parade of Frights on Saturday, Oct. 28, in the Canyon Lake Towne Center. Registration begins at 9 a.m. in front of city hall.

This historic community event will feature costumed children trick-or-treating at more than 30 Towne Center businesses using the chamber’s “Treasure Map.” Participating businesses will stamp the map and hand out treats.

Completed maps are entered into a prize drawing. Three winners will be drawn.

Kids of all ages are invited to enter the costume contest for prizes. A prize will be awarded for Best Costume in the following age groups: one and younger, two to five, six to nine and 10 to 13. Thunder from Lake Elsinore Storm will lead the costume contest parade in front of city hall.

DJ Mike Shroyer from Good Time Entertainment will be rockin’ the tunes, ABC Bounce will bring additional fun with jumpers and carnival games and Anton Riniti will make an appearance with his 33-in1 Bean Bagglz Game.

This event is hosted by the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by, Advantage Flooring, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California Properties, Canyon Lake Car Club, Canyon Mattress and More, CR&R, Platinum Plumbing, Lake Elsinore Casino and Southern California Edison.
