Belmont Park, San Diego’s iconic beachfront amusement park, returns with its 8th annual Beachside Fall Fest for guests of all ages in October and November. The magic of the season will transform the 94-year-old seaside park into a festive fall experience with shades of autumn leaves, hay bales and freshly harvested pumpkins; plus, FREE activities like trick-or-treating, live entertainment, kids’ activities and more!
Formerly known as BOOmont Park, Beachside Fall Fest will offer guests many of the same experiences through November such as festive-themed rides and attractions like the Giant Dipper, Tiki Town Mini Golf and Laser Tag; plus, the new fall Hay Maze. Seasonal in-park treats and savings on unlimited fun and food like Kids Free October* deals will also be offered.
Friday through Sunday in October from 5pm to close, plus Thursday, October 31st, guests will be able to participate in activities like FREE trick-or-treating starting at 6:30pm (while supplies last) with thousands of treats distributed throughout in-park locations. On Saturdays in October at 5:30pm (sign-ups start at 5pm), guests in the park can showcase their spirited creativity at two FREE Costume Contests. This year, guests will have a chance to win big prizes in the Open Costume Contest as well as the new Themed Category Costume Contest with weekly dress up themes (see themes and dates below). Other activities include a Hay Maze, encounters with roaming characters and the Draft Halloween Bash (21+) on Saturday, October 26th from 8pm to 1am with a $500 cash prize for the costume contest winner.
In November, Belmont Park will participate in the season of giving by offering special promotions for community organizations and groups in San Diego like first responders, military veterans and more. The Hay Maze as well as festive-themed rides and attractions will continue until November 30th. Other happenings will include free activities and live entertainment from park to boardwalk.
