Halloween Anticipation

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, October 22, 2021 Under: Fall

I love the fall season when the pumpkin patches are open and I can order a pumpkin spice latte from our coffee shops around SLO County. I also enjoy the cooler weather and how traffic is less around here as the kids are back in school and the summer tourist season is over.

Around fall, many of the local farms start planning really fun harvest events and setting up their pumpkin patches. (See my video reel at a beautiful pumpkin patch in San Luis Obispo.) Especially with kids, I enjoy the fall and Halloween season very much as they allow me to make fun memories that I didn't have the privilege to make when I was a kid. There are so many family-friendly events at farms around this area. One thing about fall though that I dread and that is they almost always get sick right before or right after Halloween!

There is the mix of awesomeness and worry with fall. It's a very eventful season, especially around SLO County. The kids bring home cute pumpkin crafts and we'd visit many pumpkin patches. Other times, we'll stay cooped up, especially if one of my kids catch a cold, watching family-friendly Halloween movies and shows, instead of going out and about. And for me, I'm okay with mixing it all up with being cooped up and staying put when I need to because we get to recharge my battery at home. The season is changing, and we'll all need a bit of a change up, when it's time.

You can find a list of trick or treating opportunities throughout San Luis Obispo County this year by going to our Halloween Events page.

See our video reels on my instagram to see pumpkin patches that we've visited:
