What The Locals Know–Halloween Events

Autumn is a fabulous time of year and October hops along with harvest festivals, pumpkin patches and corn mazes for the whole family.  The climax at the end of October is, of course, Halloween, the second highest grossing holiday of the year.
Here is a link to various locations that celebrate Halloween all month long:  http://www.mbaykids.com/Halloween.asp.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium will host its annual Halloween party on Oct. 30 for its members.
The Lighthouse District will also host its Second Annual Children’s Trick-Or-Treat on Lighthouse from 3:00 – 5:00 pm.
Insider’s tip:  Even though there are numerous crosswalk personnel, drivers be AWARE and EXTRA careful when driving along Lighthouse that Saturday!
For adults, there aren’t that many events being promoted at press time, but here’s an insider’s tip:  Keep an eye out for event postings in the Monterey County Weekly and the Go! Calendar inside the Monterey Herald newspapers.

What The Locals Know–October Festivals

Because Fall offers some of our better weather, there are many festivals and outdoor events happening in and around the Monterey Peninsula during the month of October.

Pacific Grove Historic Home Tour, Sunday October 3, 2010

Visitors will have a rare opportunity to view the interiors of Pacific Grove’s finest historic homes during the 41st annual Pacific Grove Historic Home Tour. On-site docents can answer questions about the history of the buildings and how early residents of Pacific Grove lived. Self-guided tours of these historic buildings will run from 10am to 3pm. Tickets for this once-a-year event are only $20 for adults and $10 for children 6 to 18. Children 5 and under are free.

Insider’s tip:  If you have always wanted to see what it’s like to live in one of these historic homes, go on this tour!  It may inspire some home design ideas of your own.

Now in its tenth year, Monterey History Fest has grown into a festival that offers a variety of programs for both residents and visitors to experience Monterey’s unique cultural heritage and historic resources. Sponsored by the City of MontereyMonterey State Historic Park (California State Parks) and Monterey History and Arts Association, History Fest has developed a plentiful schedule designed to bring Monterey’s past to life during this community-wide event.
Insider’s tip:  Arrive early to get the best parking spaces!
Healing Waters Ceremony, October 16, 2010, 9:00 – 10:00 AM at Del Monte Beach in Monterey

The Healing Waters Ceremony is a spiritual gathering that is one part memorial service for past loved ones (including pets), and another part healing celebration for the water itself and those animals that live within it.  This event is open to the public and free, but donations will be accepted.

This ceremony is meant to bring people together to celebrate life; remember the animals, lives, and losses of the Gulf Oil Spill–because all waters are connected; and to also heal our spirits with music, dance and prayer.
Insider’s tip:  Music will be provided by our very own local GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter, Jennifer Filzen.  She’ll be performing “Sirena”, a beautiful funeral song during the flower toss portion of the ceremony.  It’ll be a nice way for participants to say hello and goodbye to past loved ones.

Admission is free for folks interested in vintage airplanes and classic cars.  You can get a plane ride for a fee.
Insider’s tip:  Take a dream ride in an old plane and make sure you bring your video camera so you can brag about it to your Facebook friends!
