Additionally, Danville's annual Fall Crafts Festival is on October 21st and 22nd, featuring unique handmade crafts and delicious treats.
Haunted Houses and Trails: Get ready for some spooky fun! Several local venues, like the Forest of Fear Haunted House and Haunted Hayrides, are opening their doors for those who dare to be scared. Check their websites for specific dates and times.
Pumpkin Patches: Embrace the fall spirit by visiting one of the many pumpkin patches in the area. Hunt for the perfect pumpkin to carve into a jack-o'-lantern or bake into a delicious pie. Some local favorites include Schooner Farms and San Ramon's Pumpkin Palooza.
Fall Hiking: The cool October weather is perfect for exploring the beautiful trails in our region. Whether you prefer the views at Las Trampas Regional Wilderness or a leisurely walk around the Iron Horse Trail, there's no better time to enjoy the great outdoors.
This month, we want to shine a spotlight on our local charities and nonprofits that work tirelessly to support those in need. As we approach the holiday season, consider volunteering or donating to organizations like the San Ramon Valley Unified School District Education Foundation and Loaves and Fishes of Contra Costa. These organizations are always in need of assistance and resources to help our community thrive.
Local Business Highlight
This October, we want to give a shout-out to the vibrant local businesses that make our communities special. Visit Little Jewel Bakery for some amazing pastries or Mangia Mi for a taste of authentic Italian cuisine. These businesses contribute to the unique character of our area, and we encourage you to support them.
Safety First: As the days get shorter and darker, please remember to drive with extra caution and ensure that your vehicles' lights are in good working order.
Holiday Planning: It's not too early to start thinking about holiday preparations. Consider shopping local for your holiday gifts to support our community's businesses.
