Scares and Fall Fun Continue After Halloween
10-29-2012 by the Hauntmistress
When October 31st has come and gone, it does not mean that the scares or Fall festivities have come to a close. Here are some fun events to keep you going after Halloween is over.
If you’re still in the mood for a party, join the Supperclub in San Francisco for a Brazilian Halloween Ball featuring music, dancing, and more for ages 21 years and older.
On Nov. 3 in Oakland, join the Pardee Home Museum 4th Public Ghost Investigation. Karen Zimmerman, a professional ghost investigator and author, will lead the search for evidence of spirits within the Pardee Home Museum. Bring your digital recorders, cameras, EMF meters, or just your curiosity to hunt ghosts in this historic home.
Not to be outdone, on Nov. 2 and 3 the Rengstorff House in Mountain View presents Halloween Never Ends. Experience a mummy unwrapping, a séance, a lugubrious house of mourning, and much more. Relive the eerie happenings that have been reported over the decades since the last Rengstorff descendants vacated the house in 1959.
The Thrillpeddlers’ Shocktoberfest 13: The Bride of Death in San Francisco continues Thursday through Saturday until Nov. 17. You will thrill to a classic Grand Guignol theater experience.
Also playing in San Francisco, through Nov. 4 is The Raven: A Musical based on Edgar Allan Poe’s epic poem. In this musical, brothers Edgar and Allan both fall in love with Lenore. She chooses one brother and then requests something “fashionable” as a gift for her wedding day. This choice sets in motion the unfolding of events, in gothic, karmic fashion with a live musical soundtrack.
San Carlos Children’s Theater presents The Dracula Kidds on Nov. 9-11 and 16-18. In this wild mystery farce, laughter and wild chills follow students from bankrupt Kidd Academy to their Spring vacation in a gloomy old mansion on Blood Pudding Lane...a house that is haunted by a werewolf’s curse!
If spooky tours thrill you, join Jim Fassbinder on a San Francisco Ghost Hunt to some of San Francisco’s most notorious haunted places. Hear ghost stories based on documented research, see and touch eerie haunted artifacts, and learn how you can catch a ghost. Tours are offered nightly except Monday and Tuesday. Another option is the SF Chinatown Ghost Tours, which take place every Friday and Saturday. Spend an evening gallivanting through the old haunts of San Francisco Chinatown!
In Antioch on Nov. 17 and 18 you’ll find an annual tradition of holiday shopping with two buildings filled with vendors, quality crafters, and local businesses at the Contra Costa Fall Faire. Come enjoy a great variety of jewelry, clothing, holiday items, woodworking, novelties, and so much more. New this year will be Gourmet Food Trucks by Off the Grid of San Francisco. Or, if you’re in the San Mateo area, the Harvest Festival takes place Nov. 9-11 and features hundreds of artisans exhibiting American handmade items including jewelry, clothing, specialty foods, photography, original art, hand-turned wood, music, ceramics, and much more. The same event takes place at Cal Expo in Sacramento on Nov. 16-18.
