Holiday Carnival FAQ

Q: Can I pre-register to attend this event before the carnival?

A: There is no pre-registration for the Holiday Carnival.  To register, just come to Los Angeles Elementary School via the 12th Street entrance.  There will be two lines – one for those who would like to receive a toy (for children 0-10 only), and a separate line if you don’t want to receive a toy, but participate in all the other carnival activities (arts and crafts, games, inflatables, etc).  

Q: Where do I park?

A: Street parking is the only option for volunteers and attendees of this event – it is located in a densely populated neighborhood so we strongly encourage the use of public transit and carpooling.

Q: Can I volunteer?

A: Yes! We offer volunteer opportunities for those who are 14 years or older.  Learn more and sign up here.

Q: Do all children receive toys?

A: Toys are available for children ages 0-10 while supplies last.
