Orange County Coastkeeper’s Halloween Celebration features pumpkin decorating, spooky maze and more

WHAT: Ghouls, goblins, kids and adults alike are invited to celebrate Halloween early at Orange County Coastkeeper’s Garden. The family-friendly event features autumn-inspired activities including pumpkin decorating, a spooky maze and bobbing for apples.

Thanks to Homes by Kathy Wren, the celebration is free. Elusion Photography will take professional photos throughout the day that families can download and print at home. Halloween costumes are encouraged, but not required.

WHY: Coastkeeper’s renowned garden is a remarkable open-air, environmentally conscious venue that Orange County families enjoy year-round. While most festivals come and go during the Halloween season, the Garden hosts seasonal activities throughout the year to promote hands-on learning and outdoor fun.
