Grab your costume and join the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department, University of Iowa Departments of Education, Engineering, and Healthcare; the Iowa Children's Museum, and FilmScene for a family-friendly night of Halloween fun!

The Halloween Carnival will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, 2021, on the ground floor of the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp. At 7 p.m., FilmScene in the Park will host a free, outdoor screening of the classic 1990s Halloween movie, "Hocus Pocus" at the neighboring Chauncey Swan Park.

The carnival will feature ghostly carnival games, spooky experiments, Halloween themed STEAM/STEM activities, prizes, and special visitors: Iowa City police and fire, Johnson County Ambulance, and the Library's Bookmobile. This event is designed for children 10 years and under, but all ages are welcome to attend.

The north and south entrances of the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp will remain open. Those attending should either park in the upper level of the ramp, at other locations Downtown, or walk or bike with the family!
