Pismo Beach Pumpkins on the Pier!

pumpkinsHalloween is going to be tricky this year – literally. For parents of young children who still enjoy dressing up and trick-or-treating, the fact that this year’s spook-fest falls on a Monday is no laughing matter! While many of you will still trot your ghouls and goblins around on the actual holiday, it will be a bit of a rush to hit a few neighborhoods before bedtime. So here are a few fun suggestions to make it a Hallo-weekend.

One of our favorite family-fun events every year is Pismo Beach’s “Pumpkins on the Pier.” The highlight for both participants and spectators is the Costume Contest – a must for our family in which our son has participated for at least 7 years– and even been a lucky winner!. It is amazing people-watching as well – with some truly creative and bewitching costumes.
