2019 Halloween Pumpkin Plunge - Alga Norte Aquatic Center in Carlsbad

Carlsbad Halloween Pumpkin Plunge 2019

Alga Norte Aquatic Center in La Costa

 

Fall is here, stores are jammed with Halloween stuff, pumpkin patches are open, and it’s just a little over 2 weeks to the Pumpkin Plunge in Carlsbad.

 

The annual floating pumpkin patch is held at the Alga Norte Community Center in South Carlsbad (La Costa), at 6565 Alicante Road (at the corner of Poinsettia), on Saturday October 19th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Carlsbad kids get to lasso their favorite pumpkin from the floating pumpkin patch, using a hula hoop, to take home for carving or decorating and the Halloween festivities.

 

Bring your bathing suits!!

The fun in and out of the pool will include several Halloween-themed activities including collecting bones, diving for treasures, and catching mutant fish. There will also be a Bounce House and plenty of photo ops!

 

The Pumpkin Plunge ends with a special movie, Spooky the Square Pumpkin (rated G), on the giant outdoor screen, starting at dusk.

 

The Dive In Grill will be open, as it always is for Aquatic Center events, to purchase food and beverages throughout the evening. Don’t forget that food and beverages cannot be brought in from outside.

 

The cost is $10 per person; children aged 3 and under are free but must be identified at check-out. To save time, pick up your wristbands before the event, available at the Alga Norte Aquatics Center, during normal business hours, until October 18. You can register now for the Carlsbad Pumpkin Plunge; the event is limited to 600 attendees, and is expected to sell out, so don’t wait too long!

Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS - only in California or Florida could you have floating pumpkin patches.

Hi Jeff - it is definitely Fall when we see Halloween happenings of every variety.

Hi Jeff,

Floating pumpkins? What happened to apples?  Congratulations on passing the  4 million mark...A

Hi Jeff... there seems to be no shortage of Halloween-related fun in Carlsbad.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) 16 days ago

So true Grant Schneider 

I suspect that is many places by late October it will be far too cold for swimming for pumpkins. I remember taking the kids trick or treating in parkas in the snow both in New England and in Minnesota.

Hi Will Hamm 

Thanks!

Yep, things are ramping up for Halloween - lots of decorations already in town and in our neighborhood.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Barbara Todaro Yep hula hoops are still around. I see people with them on the beach occasionally and in some of the stores.

It should be a fun event for all, as all the swim events at the Center seem to be.

Hi Michael Jacobs 

It’s certainly a popular holiday. They have been marketing in the stores since August!!

Maybe they also offer bobbing for apples! No doubt snaring a pumpkin will be fun for the kiddos!

Morning Jeff.

The only pools open around here now, are the ones under roof.  High of 68º yesterday.

I've not attended an event but did check out the facility - it's the best thing around in Carlsbad that I have seen!

Jeff

I think you are getting into THAT time of year James Dray  But an indoor pumpkin plunge could work!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 15 days ago

Well I never heard of lassoing floating pumpkins before, but it sure sounds like a lot of fun for the kids.

Posted by Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089, Maui Real Estate sales and lifestyle info (Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers) 14 days ago

Oh, to be a kid again and experience Halloween through the eyes of a child with little feet and strong hands to carry all that trick-or-treat candy would be so much fun! Floating pumpkins sound like fun and so does this entire event!!!

Have a happy Halloween Jeff Dowler, CRS and I hope your grandkids have a ball!

Looks like a fun time is coming up in Carlsbad!  Floating pumpkins and bathing suits!
