The Bakersfield Homeless Center hosted its annual Halloween party, Saturday morning, for the children who are spending this Hallo-weekend at the homeless center.
Close to 200 people showed up for the Halloween Carnival and Costume Party.
On average the homeless center houses 100 children each night, many of whom won’t get the chance to trick or treat on Halloween Day.
“We want them to have a safe place to stay, we want them to have a beautiful nice routine for themselves. The kids who stay here aren’t going to get to go trick-or-treating on the 31st, so this is their time to enjoy themselves,” said Cindy Lyday, External Affairs Manager at the Bakersfield Homeless Center.
The BHS Driller service academy joined in and decorated the center’s feature attraction, the ‘Haunted Warehouse.’
And of course, plenty of candy for the kids.
