Halloween Celebrations


Halloween costumes - Tinkerbell


Californians love Halloween celebrations. There are several commercial Halloween scare experiences held as special events at California theme parks, there are dozens of reported and unreported ghost hotels and museums and there are hundreds of Halloween festivals, hunts and event celebrations. Halloween is big business in California. From professional costume rentals to parties, party lights, gift cards and candy, if youu're not celebrating Halloween, you should at least get out and enjoy it. Those who move to California can be amazed at the celebration's status as a holiday worthy of more attention and planning than most others. The kids rule the evening, but the adults rule the night in this ritual of partying in masquerade costumes.  On the California Events Calendar, we've begun posting celebration events throughout the Golden State. Take time to take a look and send us your event if you like. It should be sent via email to californiatravelnews  (@)
