On Saturday, October 25, The Marketplace at Centerra will transform into Halloween headquarters with the Halloween Hullabaloo from noon to 4:30 p.m. The street festival will take place on Fall River Drive (from Panera Bread to Noodles), and families can enjoy picking out their favorite decorated pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch, visiting a safety fair featuring Loveland Fire and Police Departments and Larimer County Search & Rescue, and participating in face and caricature painting, balloon twisting, inflatable play centers and more.

The festival will feature a costume parade with candy stops at 3 p.m. followed by a costume contest at 3:30 p.m. with entries for all members of the family including children, adults, groups and even family pets.
