  It’s October again and that means it’s time to get creepy and spooky again. What can a resident of Orange County do to get in the mood for Halloween? Some things one could consider are the “Treats in the Streets” event, heading over to the Irvine Park pumpkin patch, or trying out the 17th Door.


  “Treats in the Streets” is an event taking place in Old Towne Orange Plaza. It features Halloween themed games, a costume parade, trick or treating, and various other entertainment. Any one of any age can attend and there will be food items and treats.


  The Irvine Park pumpkin patch is a location in Irvine Park Railroad, and is an excellent spot for getting some spirit. They offer a pumpkin weigh off, a hay ride, a spooky bounce house, Halloween themed face paintings, a pumpkin ring toss, cookie decorating, and carnival games. All this for free with the park admission price.


  The 17th door is a local haunted house on El Camino Real Tustin. It is a psychological horror focused attraction and follows the story of a young college student named Paula who has a mental illness. The 17th Door will have you walking through the school she attends where you must traverse 21 unsettling rooms full of the painful and traumatic flashbacks of Paula’s past.

   Orange County is certainly not devoid of great events for someone looking for a classic Halloween activity. These October events are not limited to what is listed here, and there are many more one could attend for fun. So head out this season and do something exciting for this Halloween.
