VillageFest to Transform into Halloween Spook-tacular in Downtown Palm Springs

City News Service

(CNS) – Village Fest in downtown Palm Springs will transform into Halloween Spook-tacular Thursday featuring a Haunted Bus, a costume contest and more.

The event will run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. along Palm Canyon Drive between Baristo and Amado Roads, according to a statement from the city. The Sunline Transit Agency will park a themed Haunted Bus to explore until 9 p.m.

“Our employees really go all out to offer some fun screams and scares — and of course, there will be some treats as well,” CEO/General Manager of SunLine Transit Agency Lauren Skiver said in a statement. “This is one of several events we do each year to engage our community.”

As onlookers step into the bus, they’ll be greeted by the SunLine team in full make-up and costumes, creating the illusion that “an alien spaceship has taken a SunBus hostage to a cornfield in the middle of nowhere and is now experimenting on humans,” according to STA officials.

At 7 p.m., youth can participate in a costume contest. Throughout the night, attendees can experience chilling live music, face-painting, crafts, carnival games, trick-or-treating and more, according to city officials. VillageFest vendors, downtown merchants, police officers and firefighters will be on site with candy for trick-or-treaters. Festivities will continue until the candy runs out.
