    These look awesome! I don’t have children and being from the UK I’ve never experienced Halloween at the scale American’s celebrate it – I’d have loved how you guys celebrate it as a child, so much fun!

    Boo at the zoo is fantastic. Although I’ve never been to the one in LA. I have been to other through the country.

    Thanks for this fun list of Halloween-themed things to do. Sadly, I’m not in California, but I have friends who live in Cali, and I’ll let them know about it.

    So much fun activities to enjoy with the family. I wish California was just a short drive away. 🙁

    I don’t celebrate Halloween and no longer have kids at home. BUT …these events look great and would be a lot of fun! They’re definitely more appealing than just sending the kids out trick or treating, or to some of the really creepy/nasty events some places offer. I especially like the Disney and Spooky Farm events!

    I have a friend (adult friend, mind you) who simply hates Halloween as she’s really scared of horror stuff. I think these activities might just make the festival a little more acceptable for her!

    This looks like fun! I love this blog. It is so cute!

    From the sounds of it, seems like you may be enjoying these activities just as much as the kids!!

These look like some pretty great activities you have listed! Hope everyone has fun!
