The BOOlvd: the hottest Halloween event in Lancaster

Hundreds of people donned costumes and flooded Lancaster Boulevard on a hot Saturday afternoon. The title is quite literal: Lancaster CA felt a new local record high temperature for the date, October 27th. Anyone whose costume keeps them cozy and warm on Halloween night was sweltering that day, and those comfortable that day might find themselves chilly on Halloween night.

BOOlvd featured dozens of attractions. There was a walk-through haunted house with a carnival theme, offering both scary and kid-friendly options. A short corn maze featured plenty of decorations but only one path to follow. The streets were lined with booth after booth of games, crafts, and free treats for children. The live carving of a giant jack-o-lantern took place over the 4 hours of the event. Stage shows repeated throughout the day, culminating in a costume contest. All that plus a train ride, a pumpkin patch, themed bounce houses, and lots of food. And of course the biggest reason to attend BOOlvd - the costumes!
