Downtown Alhambra and the City of Alhambra will present the 6th Annual Alhambra Pumpkin Run Halloween Festival at 7 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, on South Second Street between Commonwealth and Main in front of Alhambra High School. Proceeds from each runner's bib will be donated to The Alhambra Educational Foundation.
The annual Hallowscream costume contest and trick-or-treating, hosted by Downtown Alhambra, will again join the Pumpkin Run Festival. The costume contest is at noon, and trick-or-treating on Main Street will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Downtown Alhambra at participating local businesses.
A new addition to the Pumpkin Run is a 10K run starting at 7:30 a.m.
The 5K run and walk begins at 8 a.m. in front of Rick's Drive In and Out, 132 W. Main St. The run/walk goes west on Main Street and makes a U-turn at Sixth Street to travel back on Main Street going east. Pumpkin runners get to run on the pavement of Main Street and enjoy the community while the streets are closed to cars and traffic. There will also be a 1K race for kids 4 to 13 years of age that begins at 9:30 a.m. Earn a 2019 medal to commemorate finishing the race and get a runner's T-shirt, swag bag, and free beer (for 21+ sponsored by Ohana Brewery) for registering to run.
The beer garden, sponsored by Ohana Brewery, will be open to runners and non-runners 21+ from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shop at Alhambra’s weekly Certified Farmers Market, enjoy a cold beer, shop at the local craft vendors, explore Downtown Alhambra, and dance to a live band that will perform on the main stage throughout the day.
The City of Alhambra will also host a kids’ zone filled with bouncers, face painting, games, and a pumpkin patch.
There will be a pumpkin pie making contest hosted by Alhambra Chamber Board members and Ambassadors.
