Halloween may be on Saturday, but that won’t stop the Gaslamp Quarter from “dressing up” in period costume the next day, Sunday, November 1, during the 9th annual Fall Back Festival.
The street fair includes “wild west” entertainment such as staged shootouts and rope tricks as three stages showing folk dancing, live bluegrass music and more. Kids can participate in crafts and contests, pan for real gold, and learn about Caliornia history through puppet shows and live demonstrations of lost skills.
And, of course, there will be all the fun stuff you’d expect to find at any good street fair — food, face painting, caricature art, inflatable jumps and carnival games.
Fall Back Festival takes place on Island Avenue — between 4th and 5th Avenues — Sunday, November 1, from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. (Remember, our clocks fall back one hour that day, too.) Admission is $5 for ages 3 and older. For more information, visit www.gaslampquarter.org or call (619) 233-4692.
