    Dinosaurs and princesses, superheroes and unicorns, more than 50 costumed trick or trunkers in all, enjoyed the Park Stockdale Civic Association’s Halloween Spooktacular Trunk or Treat and Carnival Friday, Oct.  27.

    Seven volunteers decorated their car trunks into everything from a Las Vegas Raiders-themed ghoulish nightmare with skeletons and skeleton dogs to a spider’s cobweb littered with skulls and ghosts that costumed creatures had to brave if they wanted a treat.

    The parking lot party included a dance competition, emceed by Melissa Martinez, followed by a costume parade.

    Then the party moved into the hall for 13 carnival games and prizes run by volunteers from the Bakersfield High junior varsity baseball team, Toys for Tots and the Young Marines.

    Board member Kiki Contreras masterminded and ran the event. Board member Ana Flores helped set up and board member Josh Saravia, and his wife Marilyn, decorated their car trunk for the candy distribution.

    Teresa Bradburn, Anthony and Jessica Martinez,
    Mariah Lopez, Jose Martinez, JV head baseball coach Dale Romero, coach Sammy Lona, Darlene Doughty, Amber Anderson, Erick Gutierrez and Marc Sandall also volunteered their time.

  • Residents enjoyed luau, hula dancing

    Residents enjoyed luau, hula dancing

    Four hula dancers and some inspired decorations turned the packed Park Stockdale hall into a little slice of Hawaii Saturday.

    Five pink flamingos greeted residents outside. Inside, hula dancer Caroline Angkehan and her three daughters, Leslie, Melanie and Karlie, handed out silk leis to guests, who, for the most part, were dressed in Hawaiian attire.

    Roxanne Fackler, the luau organizer and Park Stockdale Civic Association Vice President, and resident Dan Tuttle dished out shredded pork and chicken that residents ate with Hawaiian rolls, potato and macaroni salads, broccoli salad, pineapple, grapes, strawberries, and watermelon, brownies and cookies and shave ice.

    As residents dined, emcee Melissa Martinez introduced the dancers who performed “God Bless America” and then a host of traditional Hawaiian hula songs.

    Melissa encouraged guests to donate to the Maui relief efforts through their church, Red Cross or Thrivent Financial Services.

    Next was audience participation. The dancers led volunteers of all ages, wearing grass skirts, through a hula lesson. Prizes were awarded to the best dancers.

    Then three young girls participated in a hula hoop spinning contest.

    The PSCA sponsored the event that included a decorated arch for photos. Each table was named for an Hawaiian island.

    Board members who helped with the event were: Ana Flores, who shredded chicken; Kiki Contreras, who got the ice and helped clean; Pat Nolan who unloaded food, set place settings and manned the sign-in sheet with Susan Tuttle, who also provided drinks and decorated the photo op arch.

    Besides serving as emcee, Melissa provided shave ice and sound equipment. Her husband, Jose, set up and took down the ice machine, sound equipment and decorations.

    Becky Powers helped put food away.
