The Walnut Beach Halloween Parade

A celebration of our last day open on October 31, 5pm – 10pm!

Face painting, a DJ, and crazy costumes are all part of the Walnut Beach Halloween Parade.  Each year the Walnut Beach Witch appears exactly at 5pm in front of the Walnut Beach Ice Cream Shop.  The witch leads a spooky parade and rings a bell to chase away the bad spirits.  There is FREE ice cream for anyone who comes in costume, while supplies lasted.

Visit us at WalnutBeachHappenings at Meetup for details on upcoming events, announcements of our Third Thursday events and so much more.
