Halloween Events in Silicon Valley

We’re already halfway through October and Halloween is just around the corner. The Halloween spirit is all around, so join in the fun! Here are a few ways you can go out and celebrate.

Since this is the Haunted Real Estate Blog, I’ll begin with some ghostly get togethers. Santa Clara County Parks has put together the Whoppers and Ghostly Tales of New Almaden tour where you can learn history and hauntings of the old mining town. Check the Bay Area Ghost Hunters’ Meetup page for upcoming excursions such as the Haunted History Tour of Alum Rock Park on Saturday October 19th, or the Ghost & History Walk of Downtown San Jose on Saturday October 26th.

Looking for a pumpkin patch? San Jose has more than a few! Try Spina Farms’ Pumpkin Patch in South San Jose (Santa Teresa area) for the corn maze, or Moreland Education Foundation’s Pumpkin Patch and Haunted Trail (ranked Best in Bay Area by ABC7). Looking for a simple, neighborhood option? ABC Tree Farms has a plethora of locations for their Pick of the Patch Pumpkins.

Have some little ones ready to show off their costumes? Join in on a Halloween parade! Come to Downtown Los Gatos for the annual Halloween Pet & Kids Parade, Sunday October 27th from 3pm-5pm. Stop by the Dr Martin Luther King Jr Library in Downtown San Jose for an afternoon of family fun at their annual Halloween Parade, Friday October 25th from 3:15pm-4:30pm. Trick or treat at Happy Hollow Park & Zoo during their Green Halloween event on Saturday October 26th and Thursday October 31st from 1pm-4pm.

Looking for a scare? California Great America’s Halloween Haunt and Winchester Mystery House, this year presenting Unhinged, are staples for the local thrill seeker. Looking for a home-brew horror? How about Rebel Yell Haunted House in San Jose’s Cambrian Park neighborhood.

However you choose to celebrate, have a happy Halloween!
