Saturday, October 1st

This is the last weekend to see San Jose Repertory Theatre's Haunting of Winchester, a musical about what drove Winchester Rifle heiress Sarah Winchester to build that spooky house!

While you're in San Jose, the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens Visitor & Education Center is holding a Scarecrow Workshop!  Choose from a variety of shirts, pants, decorations, and plenty of stuffing to construct your scarecrow!

Those of you in the North Bay will not want to miss the Sonoma County Harvest Fair.  It's sure to be a blast with its pumpkin carving, hay rides, Haunted Room, and all the other fun stuff you'd expect at a fair!

If you're in San Francisco, don't miss Skull Making at the Randall Museum!  Your kids will wow you with their painting and creativity while having fun and getting in the Halloween spirit!
