A special thank you goes out to Lakewood Tot Lot ,a parent c0-op preschool located at Lakewood parks. Thanks also to Lakewood’s civic organizations and community Volunteers for helping to keep the Halloween Festival a great tradition living tradition in Lakewood, California. [Writers Note, Lakewood is a wonderful city of people who watch out for each other like no other town I’ve seen- People say it feels like a small town from the 1950’s where everyone knows someone who knows someone else. I Love this Town! It’s a town where you can still borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbor]
