BASS LAKE – Come to Pines Village at Bass Lake on Saturday, Oct. 19th for an all-day Fall Festival with Pancake Breakfast, Golf Cart Drags, a Haunted House, Pumpkin Patch and Costume Contests (for doggies, too)!
The super family-friendly Festival is sponsored by Bass Lake California and Ducey’s Restaurant Corporation (DRC). Proceeds of the day go to benefit local schools. There is no admission fee to enter Pines Village with its lake view, charming park and myriad neat little shops; there is a cost associated with some activities during the one-day Fall Festival, and some are free. Student volunteers from local schools are helping with the event, too.
The Pancake Breakfast gets going first thing in the morning at 7:00 a.m. in the Cedar Room at the Bass Lake Event Center. Kids of all ages can enjoy the pumpkin patch and also have the opportunity to enter their friendly canines in a Dog Costume Contest.
Other events throughout the day include Bingo, a bounce house, costume contest and face painting. Activities include a petting zoo, games, prizes and other attractions. Stop by the Pines Market for refreshments, or head over to the Pines Bar for some adult style drinks and great music.
Golf Cart Drags start at 1 p.m., and it’s BYOGC (Bring Your Own Golf Cart). Registration is $15 and proof of insurance is required to participate in the Golf Cart Drags, using electric or gasoline powered vehicles.
For more information on any activities or to register for the Golf Cart Drag, call Carrie Ann Anderson at (559) 642-3141. You can also email Carrie.
There’s even a Haunted House at Bass Lake, a collaboration of event sponsors and students, parents and teachers at Oak Creek Intermediate School (OCI) in Oakhurst. The Haunted House features a Trunk ‘n Treat and goes all day. Proceeds from the Haunted House go towards OCI’s well-loved and traditional Catalina Trip, an academic field trip for 8th graders.
Take note ghouls and boys, the Bass Lake Haunted House will return: all day on Saturday, Oct. 26 and starting at 4 p.m. on Halloween night, Oct. 31st. Haunted House proceeds again go to benefit OCI’s Catalina program.
