There are also some fun events taking place around town! 

  • The Children’s Museum 
    Who doesn’t love a good museum on a spooky evening? Join in on the fun Halloween night at the Sacramento Children’s Museum. Dress up, trick-or-treat, and more! (Plus, all of the activities may help take the kiddos’ attention away from an all-candy night!) 
  • Halloween Spooktacular 
    Visit the beautiful El Dorado Hills Town Center for a Spooktacular party and chance for some fun. Enjoy trick-or-treating before or after trick-or-treating around your very own neighborhood since the mall stays open late and is a safe place to haunt. 
  • Heartstoppers Haunted House 
    Sacramento’s favorite haunted house is the best place to go for a spooky evening. Enjoy a bunch of haunted areas and one big, spooky storyline for some Halloween frights! (This may be one to head to after the kids have gone to bed!) 

We hope you’ve added a few of these to your Halloween adventures list. And when you find that special Woodside Home community you want to call home, you can enjoy Halloween night your safe space for making memories in. Until then, speak with our team about your new home must-haves, and let us help you home.
