Why a Halloween “Stroll” for families?

It’s time to take back our neighborhoods with a positive event that involves our diverse community!

  • Begin associating Richmond with a positive family activity.
  • There is no pedestrian friendly Halloween family event in Richmond or West Contra Costa County for that matter. Parents travel to Albany’s Solano or Berkeley’s 4th Street.
  • Start to change perceptions of 23rd Street; reduce and prevent untoward elements, encouraging more foot traffic
  • In order to mobilize merchants to get more involved and spur economic activity

Thank you to our other sponsors!
