The day of the dreaded daunting haunting will occur this year precisely on Saturday, October 29, and will completely render our little town
But don’t despair! My consultants point out that the influx of ghouls and goblins will be of a festive nature as their wanton appetites are sated with offerings of sweets and diversions provided by our local merchants.
In other words, we’ve got you covered.
Saturday October 29, during the official “witching hours” of 4-6 pm. Hosted by The Graeagle Merchants Association
This is as close to traditional door to door Trick or Treating as you’ll find these days. Our signature merchant “houses”,all in a row,are decked out in Halloween attire, bags of goodies at the ready. I’ll be stirring up a cauldron on My Front Porch as usual. C’mon up…if you dare.
If you just can’t contain yourself and your little ghoulies until 4:00, drive on out to Lil’ Meg’s Pumpkin Patch at Whittemore Farms (open from 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday) where children are encouraged to come in costume for a run through the corn maze and pumpkin patch. Lil’ Megs also offers delicious home baked goodies for all ages. 4118 Segundo Road in Sierra Valley off A-23 (turn on Valle Vista Drive).
For the purists among you , The Graeagle Community Church will hold its annual Trunk or Treat (I’d choose the treat if I were you) on actual Halloween, Monday, October 31. Friendly local ghosts will gather in the church parking lot starting at 7:00 pm. 150 Johnsville Road, Graeagle.
