October in Orange County has lots to offer! This month we have tons of Scary events to attend for the celebration of Halloween. We’ve shared some of our favorite happenings this week! Still looking for more? Head to our Event Calendar in the link below.
Surf City Nights
Starts at 5 p.m. at Downtown Huntington Beach
This Tuesday 10/16/18 attend Surf City Nights, the weekly street fair and certified farmers market down in Huntington Beach, proved so popular with Orange Countians that officials had to expand the already-sizable shindig over to the Strand on 5th Street. What that means for us is even more vendors to peruse, ranging from jewelry to clothing to home decor to weird knick-knacks; even more street performers and musicians, and even more tasty food selections to sample. So with that much ground to cover, we think it’s best to get there right for the 5 p.m. start time. Wear your walking shoes. Event ends at 9 p.m.
Knott’s Scary Farm
Starts at 1:00 p.m. at 8039 Beach Blvd in Buena Park
Starting 09/20/18 Knott’s Scary Farm is the largest and most haunting Halloween experience in Southern California, with unimaginable scares and innovative thrills that can’t be found anywhere else. The fully transformed theme park encompasses 14 uniquely haunted mazes and attractions, sinister shows and more than 1,000 horrifying creatures lurking in the fog and hiding in every corner of the park. This year’s Knott’s Scary Farm experience has all the ingredients of a truly terrifying nightmare, but unlike most dreams, Knott’s Scary Farm is a nightmare you can’t wake up from. The event is not recommended for children under 13. Event ends October 31st.
Sinister Pointe’s SCARY PLACE
Starts at 7:00 p.m. at Laguna Hills Mall in Mission Viejo
From September 09/28/18 through October 10/31/18 you can attend Sinister Pointe’s Scary Place. A ticket to Scary Place gets you unlimited same-day visits to “three floors full of haunted attractions,” including two mazes, a haunted ride, and live entertainment at Laguna Hills Mall. Step right up and see if you have what it takes when you’re put up against some of your greatest fears.
