Halloween is the perfect time of year for discovering new events and activities that the whole family can enjoy. If you’re looking to do more together than just trick-or-treating, how about seeking out some family fun in the redwoods? The Roaring Camp Railroad in Felton, CA gets into the spirit of the holiday with a special “Thomas and Percy’s Halloween Party™” for families and children. This sounds like a really fun event that includes a 20 minute train ride, entertainment, and fun filled activities for the entire family! I love this idea because everyone gets to enjoy both the scenery and the show.

The Thomas and Percy’s Halloween Party™ events also feature face Painting, story telling, videos, train play tables, pick a pumpkin (small pumpkins for little ones), cookie decorating, photos with Sir Topham Hatt, and more. Check it out on October 29th and 30th. You can learn more and purchase advanced tickets online—their website states that advanced registration is required.

What else does your family like to do together for Halloween, and have you ever spent it in the redwoods? I’d love to know! If you can’t make it to the redwoods for Halloween, send your friends and family a free spooky, redwood-themed ecard!

P.S. Still thinking up your Halloween costume? Try dressing up like a forest animal (a bear, squirrel, or salamander, maybe?) or even a redwood tree! If you do, be sure to send us a picture to post!
