Have a Creative Halloween!

Halloween Hoopla


Halloween Hoopla by Yerba Buena Gardens  |  Sunday, October 26

Join us for the 14th annual Halloween Hoopla in Yerba Buena Gardens! This family-friendly event features interactive performances and games for kids under 10 and their adults.

Led by the ever-popular Unique Derique, the Hoopla features dancing to music by Chelle! & Friends, eco-friendly crafts courtesy of Trash Mash-Up, a mad scientist in our spooky graveyard, roving antics from the Pi Clowns, and palm reading from the mysterious Madam Z. PLUS we’ll be leading a trick-or-treat bag design workshop.

Bring your camera for the Ghoulish Photo Booth, and take a memento home! The program culminates in the eagerly awaited Halloween Costume Parade, where everyone shows off their Halloween finery.

This event is FREE for all ages.


Looking for a little inspiration to create your costume? Head over to our ever-growing pinterest board for some ideas, or consider creating a cardboard costume on Saturday, October 11 at our Cardboard Challenge!

Short on time to create the perfect costume this year? The Children’s Creativity Store has you covered with a wide selection of masks, wings and other accessories!
