More than one hundred families came out to the Pruneyard Shopping Center Saturday afternoon to trick-or-treat and celebrate at the annual Halloween Extravaganza.
Radio Disney led the festivities with music, dance exhibits and games for the children who showed up to the plaza Saturday in their Halloween costume and went trick-or-treating to every business in the shopping center.
Representatives from a new Pruneyard restaurant Pacific Catch were in the plaza handing out candy and sampling fresh food from its menu while employees from Trader Joe's were handing out free apple cider.
Balloon-makers from Adventure Balloons were on-hand to make the most uniques ballon figures for the chidren while Barnes And Noble employees were leading arts and crafts demonstrations.
Walnut Creek resident Meygan Casillas said she takes her children to the Pruneyard every year for the Halloween Extravaganza because it is safe and family-friendly.
“We’ve been coming to this for the past three years, since my children were babies,” Casillas said. “It’s a safe environment and we trust the area.”
The annual event is hosted by Equity Office Management, LLC., who manage the Pruneyard property and its businesses.
Rebekah Children’s Services, a local nonprofit organization which specializes in social services for foster children, was in attendance collecting costumes for children in its program.
