Once Upon a Hallowe’en is a family-friendly event that is now in its seventh year.

Celebrate Halloween in a distinctly different way by taking a ride into the past aboard the “Halloween Express,” Poway’s own Baldwin Steam Locomotive, operated by the Poway–Midland Rail Road Volunteers.

Noted storyteller Charles Johnson will entertain in Templars Hall from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, and the Porter House will be transformed into a haunted house by members of the Apache Canyon Gang, who will fill it with skits and bits of nonsense that are guaranteed to thrill and chill.

Children will delight in playing a variety of carnival-type games, racing ducks in the Fountain and making a Hallowe’en “Haunt” to take home as a remembrance of this magical evening.

Sparks will fly as the Blacksmith Guild performs Metal Detonations in the dark of night, and Thriller Dancers will perform in the Gazebo at 6:30 and 7:30 pm.

The Heritage Dancers will provide tamales, popcorn, cookies and bottled water for a nominal fee. Visit to learn more!
