SF Rec & Park to Host Scaregrove for thousands of San Francisco Kids

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department will host a wild Halloween event Friday where thousands of kids and their families will gather for a spooky and fun Fall festival. This family-friendly event in Stern Grove will feature carnival rides, a haunted house, a costume parade, live entertainment, games, hay rides, food for sale and more.  Scaregrove begins at 3p.m. — the cost for the event is $8 per person; children under 2 are free.

“Scaregrove has become a San Francisco Halloween tradition,” said Mayor Ed Lee. “We will continue fun, safe and festive events for our families all across our City.”

In addition to the thousands of visitors, there will be nearly 150 volunteers who will help children make Halloween-themed arts and crafts, paint the faces of kids, and scare them as zombies in the haunted house. The event is part of SF Rec and Park’s overall efforts to serve the diverse families of San Francisco by hosting seasonal citywide family events including Eggstravaganza in the Spring, Play Day in the Summer, and the Holiday Tree Lighting in Winter.

“Scaregrove is one of our most exciting events of the year — it’s certainly the spookiest,” said Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec & Park’s General Manager. “In its sixth year, this event continues to serve the needs of San Francisco families by hosting quality recreational activities.”

Scaregrove is generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, Zynga.org, and the San Francisco Association of Realtors, with support from Recology and the Stern Grove Festival.
