Come to CRAFTED for the “spooktacular” Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos weekend. We have activities planned that you and your friends or family can all enjoy!
Halloween – Saturday, Oct. 31st
11a-3p: Got little ones? Get a head start on the day’s festivities with daytime trick-or-treating (sorry, Vampires). Kids are invited to bring their candy buckets and go shop-to-shop to show off their costumes and see how the CRAFTED artists have decorated their shops and themselves, too!
2p: CRAFTED’s Annual Costume Contest. All ages and levels of creativity welcome. Bring it for all kinds of creative categories, and you just might win a $100 CRAFTED cash prize!
All day: It’s never too late to decorate. Make a miniature haunted houses, paint a candy corn mason jar, weave a spider web or design a candy bag to hold all of the treats you’re going to collect. Your creativity is sure to light up the night. Drop by the Creation Station to participate.
Make a day of it: From 9-11a.m., start your day at the LA WATERFRONT HOWL-O-WEEN PET PARADE. Who says Halloween is just for humans? Dress up your pet and enjoy treats and activity stations along the promenade. Costumes are encouraged, but not required. Parade route starts at Downtown Harbor in San Pedro, then along the Harbor Blvd. Parkway Promenade to the Fanfare Fountain. Pets should be leashed, caged, or otherwise restrained – no exceptions. Donated items will be accepted to benefit the Harbor Area Animal Shelter. This is a free community event brought to you by the Port of Los Angeles.
Adults Only: These limited edition “Mummy’s Drink” cake pops are a grown up treat infused with Vodka and vanilla. Grab a box from Drunken Cake Pops and be the hit of the party tonight. P.S. Check in on Yelp for a special deal.
Dia de Los Muertos – Sunday, Nov. 1st
The celebration continues on Sunday with Dia de Los Muertos! Many of our stores carry fantastic Day of the Dead themed items as well, and some will have altars on display. Two local folklorico groups will also be performing:
12p: Grupo Folklorico Nadino
1p: Folklorico del Mar
All Day: The Global Gifts UNICEF Store will be hosting a Dia de los Muertos craft at their booth – children can decorate skulls to take home with them.
2-5p.m.: “Fall Fantasy” painting party with host/instructor, Shari Tipich.
Treat yourself to three hours of step-by-step instructions plus appetizers, drinks and wine. You’ll leave with a lovely 16×20 creation on canvas. All materials included; sign up today!
Make a day of it: After stopping at CRAFTED, make sure you head to San Pedro’s annual Dia de Los Muertos Festival, where from 3-9p.m. the streets come alive with art, culture, delicious cuisine and live entertainment. You’ll also get to enjoy performances by groups like the Grammy award-winning, Mariachi Divas.
This weekend is sure to be a spirited one, so come join in the fun!
