This year we combined our favorite traditions with a few new offerings. Adults and kids alike enjoyed live music from the Local Players and freshly made hot cocoa from Benchmark Pizzeria. New this year we had free face painting and glitter tattoos for the kiddos! And local artists showcased their unique, handmade treasures at the artist mini-market. Reach out if you'd like to have a table next year. Thanks to everyone who joined us!

Where's the Witch Scavenger Hunt October 2021
This year we hosted our Where’s the Witch scavenger hunt, where kids used a Colusa Circle map to find the witches on display in storefront windows at participating businesses and then earned an organic soft serve ice cream cone from Benchmark as a reward. Additionally, there was a coloring contest where winners earned a free ice cream sundae or pizza.

Due to COVID restrictions, we were unable to hold our Colusa Circle Tree Lighting Event. However, we still illuminated the lights on the circle's old oak tree throughout December and January. Even in these dark times, the tree is a wonderful reminder of all the light that still exists. We hope to celebrate the 5th Annual Colusa Circle Tree Lighting with our community in 2021.
2020 Where's The Witch Scavenger Hunt
We were unable to hold our annual Halloween Harvest Celebration, in partnership with the Kensington Farmers Market. However, we still wanted to bring a little Halloween spirit to the circle with our annual Where's The Witch Scavenger Hunt for kids. Throughout the month of October, children searched participating Colusa Circle businesses' storefronts to find the hidden witches, using their Colusa Circle maps. The maps could then be redeemed at Benchmark Pizzeria for a free organic soft serve.
Thank you to all those who participated!
