Culver City’s Largest Annual Event La Fiesta Ballona Returns

The Culver City Parks, Recreation & Community Services (PRCS) Department is excited to announce that, for this year only, Fiesta La Ballona will take place Halloween weekend: Friday, October 29 through Sunday, October 31.

“Fiesta La Ballona is one of Culver City’s longest-running traditions,” commented Culver City Mayor Alex Fisch. “Although the event is typically held in the summer, this year we’ll be able to enjoy the celebration with a Halloween twist!”

Mark your calendars for Halloween weekend in Vets Park! The PRCS Department will host the event in the customary location at Veterans Memorial Park (4117 Overland Avenue, Culver City, 90230). Residents can look forward to the popular carnival rides and games, live music and dance performances, a diverse variety of food vendors, a beer & wine garden, craft and retail shopping areas—plus local community and non-profit booths. PRCS will also incorporate new fall-themed activities, including pumpkin carving and costume competitions, Halloween décor, trick-or-treating on Sunday—and more!
