Halloween Fun: Spooky Night Hike

Saturday evening, we went on a fun “spooky night hike” at Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont.  My son was looking forward to this event more than to trick-or-treating on Halloween night!

Before sundown, we met with our hike leader (a naturalist / pirate), who gave the kids some safety tips before heading out.  Then he led the families up into the hills.

Along the way, we enjoyed skits which taught the children about the history of Halloween.  My son was enchanted with the stories.

And we watched the sun go down over the hills and the San Francisco Bay…

After the sun set, we headed out for the second half of our hike…. in the dark.  My son and another boy were absolutely certain they were seeing and hearing ghosts in the hills.  So cute!

To top it all off, at the end of the hike, there was a bonfire, where the kids roasted marshmallows, ate popcorn, and watched more Halloween skits.

Super fun!!
