Thank you to all who came out to our Halloween Family Festival, sponsored in partnership with the City of Rancho Santa Margarita and RSM’s Chamber of Commerce! As guests entered this spooktacular event, they were greeted by bright inflatable bounce houses, 40 vendor booths that were decorated with Halloween spirit, and a festive fall photo-op that provided the perfect back drop for families to capture unforgettable memories. The event hosted nearly three thousand attendees throughout the afternoon and early evening with many adorable, spooky, silly and creative costumes to be seen!
Local business from all over Rancho Santa Margarita joined in the fun with Halloween decorated booths and fun costumes, providing candy and games to all of the little ones that came to visit. A few of the spooktacular booths at the event included the City of Rancho Santa Margarita and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department who scuttled in a crew of pirates and hosted a haunted trailer. Park Terrace had an “Under the Sea” themed booth where kids fished out their prizes, and Cool Cuts 4 Kids transformed their booth into the colorful movie Coco while providing face painting.

A number of different food trucks came out to feed hungry goblins, including the El Governador Taco Truck, Screamin’ Ice Cream, Kool Kahuna Shave Ice, and Moonwood Coffee Company. The variety of food relieved families from the stress of making dinner before their excited little ones filled up on Halloween treats.
It was a fun afternoon of high flying ghosts, free treats, games, arts and crafts, face painting, bounce houses, food trucks, costume contests, a costume parade, and wholesome fall family fun. The costume contest was a hit, with countless entries in the adult, family, child, and pet categories; the contest winners went home with wonderful prizes for effort and creativity.
We hope you had a fun, safe and SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!
