It’s time to dust off those Halloween costumes. The annual “Summerween” celebration will return to Patten Square on Saturday, June 29.

Brought to you by River City. Co + SoundCorps, this free and open-to-public event celebrates all the things you love about Halloween in the summertime (hence, the clever name).

Beginning at 6 p.m., you can enjoy live music by local bands Haym and Genki Genki Panic + see street performers like fire dancers in the square. Food trucks will be on-site with pizza, cool treats, and drinks — and of course, there will be trick or treating.

Our favorite part? The contests:

  • 7 p.m. | Watermelon carving contest (make sure to arrive with your pre-carved watermelon)
  • 7:45 p.m. | Kids costume contest
  • 9:30 p.m. | Adult costume contest

May the best costumes + watermelons win — there’s bragging rights and $50 gift cards on the line.
