Halloween in the Village!!

halloween2016web

C3, Carlsbad Causes for Community, is holding its annual Halloween In The Village Saturday, October 29 at C3 headquarters, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op. This fun-filled event begins at 2:00 pm at the Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op and continues with trick-or-treating throughout The Carlsbad Village until 6:00 pm. It is a free community event for families and kids of all ages.

Halloween In The Village kicks off with the C3 Fun Zone where guests will be greeted with live music by The Elements, a teenage rock band, and enjoy a jump house, face painting, hula-hoops, and cotton candy. Guests will be given a trick-or-treat bag and a map that highlights all of the generous merchants that will be giving out treats.

To add to the festivities, there will be a costume contest for the cutest, funniest and scariest costume. Trick-or-treaters should check-in at 2:15 pm to enter the contest, and winners will be selected at 3:00 pm.

“We are so proud to be hosting the fourth annual Halloween In The Village!,” said Deb Ferraro, C3 Founder. “It’s really wonderful how many businesses in The Carlsbad Village unite as a community to help our community!”

The event is made possible in large part by the kindness of the sponsors: presenting sponsor, Homelife Village Realtors, and community sponsors: Brubaker and Associates, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op, and Carlsbad Counseling Center.

Once a city-funded event, Halloween In The Village is now led by C3, a non-profit consisting of local businesses, non-profits and Carlsbad residents who collaborate to raise money for various community causes by putting on programs and events around The Carlsbad Village.

Next month, C3 will host its C3 Village-wide Food Drive to benefit Got Your Back San Diego. C3 will be collecting peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, cans of tuna, and other easy to prepare items for hungry kids in North County.

Come Celebrate THREE Years with Us!!

A note from Deb (founder/owner if Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op):

Three years ago, I signed a lease for what is now our amazing co-op. I knew less than 20 people in Carlsbad. Most were either yoga teachers or students and the rest were neighbors or my landlords. I had no money for marketing and used to drag a big homemade cardboard YOGA sign onto the Roosevelt Street sidewalk in hopes that people would find us. My plan was to work hard and to move into the studio space if the money from refinancing my house in Denver ran out. That’s not a plan. And thankfully that didn’t happen.

What did happen was MAGIC! Well sort of… Dreams, hope, faith, hard work, persistence, that of course happened (and still does)… But YOU HAPPENED!! And that’s the MAGIC part! A whole entire COMMUNITY evolved out of an EMPTY space. A community full of LOVE surfaced and has been GROWING and GLOWING under a now big lit up orange YOGA sign!

So let’s UNITE because we have a LOT to CELEBRATE! As the studio turns 3 and as I turn 39, I reflect on all the growth of not only the studio, but of all the individuals that make up our community. The friendships that have evolved, the tears that have dropped, the fears that have been overcome, and all the personal growth and breakthroughs that have happened to so many of us on so many levels.

THANK YOU for being part of this AMAZING JOURNEY!
We’ve come a long way, baby! And I’m SO GRATEFUL to be on this journey with YOU!

Join Deb and the rest of the wonderful people that make this space a warm and friendly environment on September 19th, 2015 7:30pm to celebrate another year!
