The annual Goblin Gallop encourages runners to participate in costume and offers a costume contest before the runs commence.

Each year, the City of Westlake Village partners with several community organizations to host the Westlake Village City Celebration. Over the past 13 years, the City Celebration has become a spectacular community gathering that takes place entirely at the Westlake Village Civic Center. This year’s City Celebration will be held on Saturday, October 17, beginning at 3 p.m. The early afternoon and evening times allow for a full slate of activities, including a twilight 10K/5K/1M run/walk and a food court full of tasty selections.

A full breakdown of the day’s exciting activities is listed below:

White Oak Family Festival

The popular White Oak Family Festival returns with exciting rides like Rat Race, Tornado, Swings, and a Giant Slide. Grab a spot in the circle for the cake walk, choose from treats at the 5th grade bake sale, browse and bid on silent auction items that benefit the White Oak PFC, or try your hand at one of the old fashioned carnival games.

Triunfo YMCA Goblin Gallop 1M, 5K, and 10K

participate as possible. The document shredding and electronic-waste recycling will be
held from 3-6 p.m.
