The City of Hayward and AC Transit will close Watkins Street and part of C Street and reroute bus lines down Atherton Street from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, to make space for the return of Hayward Public Library’s Trunk or Treat.
HPL’s Trunk or Treat event returns from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Heritage Plaza across the street from the downtown library this year will be bigger than ever. All are invited. Dress in costume, or come as you are, but fun is guaranteed for all.
There will be face painting, bubbles, crafts and activities for kids, free food, a car show, a job fair, and of course Halloween treats for kids. Performances by cheer squads, bands, folklorico dancers, and many other local talented students are scheduled.
Bay Area Blues musician extraordinaire Aki Kumar will entertain the crowd with his singing, virtuoso harmonica playing, and his upbeat fusion of Blues and Bollywood music, which always gets the crowd dancing.
Trunk or Treat is being presented in conjunction with Hayward Promise Neighborhood’s Promise Fest. Hayward Promise Neighborhood is a collaborative partnership led by Cal State University, East Bay, focused on educational success from cradle-to-career in Hayward. The Promise Fest celebrates the partnership’s decade of service to the community and the expansion of services to the Downtown area.
