One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. I loved it when I was a child and I love it as an adult. Now that I am a new mother, my Halloween activities have shifted gears.
Oakland boasts a ton of family fun activities for celebrating Halloween including parades, spooky haunted houses and pumpkin patches. In fact, just across the Bay in Half Moon Bay, the largest pumpkin of the year was grown.
This year I am really excited for the parades. Watching all the kids in their Halloween costumes trick-or- treating down the road makes for much entertainment. There are two parades in particular that I think are worth attending in Oakland: The Rockridge parade and the Piedmont Ave parade.
