Bay Area Events Top Picks

Weekend guide for 10-17-2014 to 10-19-2014 by the Hauntmistress

It’s the third weekend in October and that means it’s time to hit up pumpkin patches and haunted houses if you haven’t already. But if that’s not your thing, there are plenty of other fun activities happening. Here are our Top Picks!

Wednesday through Sunday the kids will love Candle Lighters Ghost House in Fremont. This year’s theme is Vampire Cruise Line. There is also a midway of games, caramel apples, a country store, and delightful food treats!

In Santa Rosa on Thursday through Sunday you can watch a live stage production of The Addams Family. The play also runs Friday through Sunday in Martinez, where they encourage you to dress up for the musical performance and enter the nightly costume contest. Or if you’re in the mood for the movie, Oakland Movie in the Park on Friday is scheduled to show the PG-rated movie.

While you’re in the North Bay stop by Rohnert Park’s Blind Scream Haunted Houses. Take a walk through the dark in Blackout; terrorize your senses in Carnicus; and journey through Swamp Shack where voodoo never escapes you.

Also Thursday through Sunday, the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton hosts Pirates of Emerson featuring six haunted attractions, games, entertainment, and more!

On Saturday and Sunday in Suisun you’ll enjoy the Western Railway Museum Pumpkin Patch Festival. Take a train ride to the pumpkin patch where you’ll also find a hay bale fort, food, tractor rides, music, and more!

On Saturday more than 50 Bay Area artists and crafts people will display and sell their creations at the Noe Valley Harvest Festival in San Francisco. There will also be non-stop entertainment and activities for adults and kids, including live bands on two stages, a pumpkin patch (free for the kids!), two jumpy tents, balloon artists, face painters, a henna artist, a dog costume contest, a kid’s costume contest, and a dunk tank!

In Sausalito on Saturday and Sunday the Discovery Museum Goblin Jamboree invites you to experience the Museum transformed into a spooktacular Halloween wonderland complete with a witches and wizards school, pony rides, petting zoo, live entertainment, and more.

If all of this fun doesn’t make you excited about the Fall, then check out our map of pumpkin patches and haunted houses or our Events Calendar. There are many more activities happening around the extended Bay Area!
