Nothing to do? You can find plenty to do in the Inland Empire. Halloween is coming up on Friday, and there are other activities not related to the holiday. Here are just a few of the things that you can do in the coming days. Remember to dress warmly and in layers, so you can be prepared for any kind of weather.
If you are on the mountain, and you have children, several activities are available, including the annual handout of candy for children and hot coffee for parents on Pioneer Camp in Crestline, just two blocks north of Lake Drive, where the road is relatively flat and level. This takes place on Halloween, which is Friday, beginning about 5 p.m., as darkness begins to fall.
PUMPKINPALOOZA At Mt. Calvary Lutheran Early Education Center, TRUNK or Treat @ Running Springs, CA – PUMPKINPALOOZA is coming to Running Springs on Friday, October 31, at the Mt. Calvary Kid’s Corner at 32054 Hunsaker Way (Highway 18). The PUMPKINPALOOZA event begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m. A “Trunk Or Treat” handout, games, free hot dogs and raffles ($1 or 6 for $5) and more will keep young or old entertained thanks to Mt. Calvary Lutheran Early Education Centers.

Fall Festival At Lake Gregory Community Church is another option. Lake Gregory Community Church expects about 1,000 children to participate in its annual Fall Festival on Friday, October 31.
