It’s my favorite season of the year. October’s weather is still warm but the air feels chilly and crisp in the morning and evening. The tree leaves are turning the most fantastic orange, red and yellow color. With all the pumpkin items filling up the shelves at Trader Joe’s, you know Halloween is just around the corner. In addition to all the fun pumpkin patches you can visit, there are many Palo Alto Halloween activities you can attend. I have compiled a list of Palo Alto Halloween activities below for you and your little ones to enjoy. I hope you find it helpful!
