Isla Vista Recreation and Park District (IVRPD) is thrilled to announce that in the spirit of Halloween, it will be hosting a Haunted Pumpkin Patch in Estero Park that people of all age groups can enjoy. The Haunted Pumpkin Patch, presented by Lucidity LLC, is a multi-day event with state-of-the-art lighting, audio, and visual decorations that provides a safe and family-friendly Halloween theatrical experience in Isla Vista. This premier event features a vibrant and interactive guided tour, led by costumed performers through a variety of unique environments as guests unfold the homespun tale of the Pumpkin King’s Folly and the Pumpkin Queen’s quest to save her kin and “set the spirit of Halloween free” ultimately picking up a pumpkin at the end.
“Our vision was to curate an experience that different generations represented in Isla Vista could enjoy together and celebrate the creativity that local artist’s ability to enhance a recreational opportunity within our parks” said Kimberly Kiefer, General Manager of Isla Vista Recreation and Park District. “We felt it was important to offer the community a fun way to enjoy the Halloween spirit, safely together again.”
Pumpkin Patchers will revel in Lucidity’s signature light projection, aerial acrobatics, and bamboo sculptures as they make their way to the “exit portal” where each group, upon learning the story’s dramatic conclusion, will receive a souvenir pumpkin for them to take home while supplies last.
“Lucidity is ecstatic over the opportunity to create an immersive theatrical performance celebrating Halloween in collaboration with Isla Vista Recreation and Park District,” says Jonah Haas, Lucidity’s Marketing Manager and Co-Founder. “This is something we’ve been dreaming about for some time, as we always seek to bring deeper story-driven narrative structures into the events that we produce. I feel like the Haunted Pumpkin Patch that we have planned will do an amazing job of capturing the essence of the Halloween spirit, will appeal to an audience of college students, community members, and local families, and will lay the groundwork for more epic collaborations in Isla Vista parks into the future.”
The event is free of admission and is focused on serving the community of Isla Vista. Adult supervision is recommended for guests under the age of 10. No food or drink will be served or sold. Drugs and alcohol are not permitted. This event will be held in accordance with all applicable local health and safety guidelines, and Santa Barbara County festival ordinances.
