Pack Your Spooky Shoes in Santa Cruz

Pack Your Spooky Shoes in Santa Cruz

October 07, 2019

Halloween is starting early in Santa Cruz this year—13 days early to be exact. We love this spooky season so much in Santa Cruz that we decided it was only right to begin celebrating a little earlier than usual. It’s about to be 13 Days of Halloween on the Wharf, and you’re invited to get a little scary with the rest of the town. October 19th is when all the ghouls and boys will be sneaking out of their graves and socializing among the haunted. They will be dancing their skeletons off to Thriller and attempting to catch a ghastly picture at the photo booth. There will also be seasonal specials at the majority of restaurants and some of the gift shops for the last two weeks of October. Make sure to dress in your best costume before making your way down to the wharf. It’s a great way to kick-off the fall season and to cause a little harmless trouble at the same time.
