Last year, our favorite fall celebrations were canceled due to Covid 19 restrictions. The year before, they got snuffed by the Kincade Fire. But, get ready for this year, ‘cuz we’ve got a great line-up of activities for all ages to celebrate Halloween and Día de los Muertos. We’ve got Halloween movies on the big screen outdoors, cemetery tours, trick or treat events, and dance parties for the over-21 set. Celebrate the Day of the Dead with art, sugar skulls, music, dancing, and altar-making!
