It pretty much sucks that we cannot just walk around and trick-or-treat anymore at our ages, right? Well, the weekend is for the adults, but Halloween is for everyone and our city makes sure of that.
Even though there are still huge parties to attend like the Omnia’s Party Favor with Kittens tonight at 7pm with major DJ Ryan Ragland, aka “Party Favor,” there are even some fun trick-or-treating adventures planned like the India Street Trick-or-Treat! And, of course, we cannot forget what is happening on the actual day of Halloween like the BarleyMash Freak Show, the Oxford Social Club Halloween Night, and the Tin Roof Saints and Sinners Ball!
If you’re interested in some holiday music and you live near Logan Heights or around that area, check out the Michael Dessen Trio, a fun composition of electronic music mixed with trombone, bass, and drums. Starting at 7:30 tonight at Bread & Salt on Julian Ave, this trio will be the real treat that follows the trick! Another great musical show happening tonight is the “Romace, Mystery, Marsalis,” featuring the incredible violinist Nicola Benedetti at the San Diego Symphony Jacobs Masterworks concert starting at 8 pm tonight.
You always still have a chance to swing by the famous Scream Zone at the Del Mar Fair Grounds up until tomorrow night to get your “fright” on with family and friends, you can check out the Whaley House in Old Town for an old-fashioned scare with a tour that will knock your socks off, and don’t forget the Haunted Hotel on Market Street; our neighbors in downtown San Diego! The Gaslamp Quarter screams can be heard from the edges of the city! As well as what is creeping from Balboa Park’s Haunted Trails on the mile-long terrifying trek you will never forget!
And, you still have time to swing by the best pumpkin patches in San Diego to get your carve on! Check out Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center, Boomont Park Fall Festival and Haunt in Mission Bay, Alpine’s Annual Pumpkin Festival, Lakeside’s Oma’s Pumpkin Patch, and more scattered around the city.
We all know the real fun for the kids will come tomorrow night on all Hallow’s Eve, but why not have some adult fun and make the occasion worth remembering at our ages. We hope you danced the night away over the weekend at the many festivities to choose from downtown, in Pacific Beach, and more, or just had yourself a good, old-fashioned party at the house with your closest family and friends.Remember to stay safe though! Halloween can be a tricky time with so many kids out, so just please do us a favor and the city and remain safe. But have fun! Happy Halloween!
