• Carmel to Celebrate its Birthday Oct. 25

    Carmel-by-the-Sea was incorporated on Halloween in 1916, so it celebrates its birthday and the country’s favorite costume-and-candy holiday with a Halloween Parade through downtown. Everyone is welcome to participate or observe. City dignitaries, VIPs, costumed dogs and kids, and residents and visitors alike gather for this upbeat annual affair.

    The City of Carmel-by-the-Sea will celebrate its 98th birthday with its traditional Halloween parade and a party on Saturday, Oct. 25.

    The parade will start at 11 a.m. with the staging area at the Sunset Center. The route will be west on Ocean Avenue from San Carlos Street to Monte Verde Street, with a return loop east on Ocean Avenue back to San Carlos. Ocean Avenue will be closed to traffic during the parade.

    The party will start at 12 noon at the Sunset Center and will feature a $5 birthday lunch. Hot dogs, chili, chips, drinks, ice cream and birthday cake will be served.

    Tickets for the lunch are on sale at City Hall, the Carmel Police Department, Harrison Memorial Library, and the Carmel Chamber of Commerce. On the day of event, tickets will be on sale at the Sunset Center.
