Howl-oween Festival in Long Beach

October 28: Join the boo-tiful El Dorado Nature Center for a hare-raising good time as you trick-or-treat your way along the trails. Visit the animal education village, or bounce yourself silly in the Ooh-possum Patch. There will be puppet shows and face painting, food trucks and crafts. Parking is $7, and a suggested donation of $5 to support Partners of Parks/ Friends of El Dorado Nature Center at the gate. Dress as your favorite creature. Saturday, 2-6 p.m. El Dorado Nature Center, 7550 E. Spring St., Long Beach. www.facebook.com/events
