Conejo Valley ideas for Halloween
Live in the Conejo Valley and want some ideas for Halloween? Whether you live here or you are courting the idea of relocating, what better way to get to know your neighbors and have some fun than to be scared out of your wits by ghouls and goblins? But seriously if you have never ventured out in the Valley on Halloween, there are so many organized activities. There is no excuse not to have fun! Take a look at just a few of the splendid goings-on.
Zombie Walk?!! Ahhh!
The Stagecoach Inn Museum at 51 South Ventura Park Road, Newbury Park, does something awesome every year for Halloween. This year is no exception. On Saturday, October 31st from 12:30pm and 4pm the museum is hosting Halloween crafts, games and storytelling for the kiddies and even a pre-carved pumpkin contest. So get to carving – you could win big and it’s a fun event that the whole family can enjoy together. The museum states on their website that costumes are optional but highly encouraged. Of course – Halloween is all about costumes but I guess they want have too much of a ‘fright’ if you decide to go sans costume. But the best part is the museum sponsors a Zombie walk! That’s right you read that right – you can take part in a Zombie Walk! How fun is that?
Admission $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students (not to mention senior students and student seniors) and $2 for kids ages 5 to 12. Under 5 is free! www.stagecoachmuseum.org
Visit an Enchanted Forest!
Prefer to stay in with your little ones on Halloween? Why not head on over to the Oak Park’s 10th Annual Indoor Halloween Carnival? The Oak Park Community Center does it big every year for Halloween and this year is no exception. The event will take place at Oak Park Community Center, 1000 Kanan Road, on Saturday, October 31st from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Only $2 for 2 and up and $1 for under age 2.

The Halloween Carnival is for so fun for children but kids and their parents will enjoy games, attractions, food and even prizes. Costumes are encouraged.

Hempstead Halloween Tour
If you just moved to Agoura Hills or to one of the surrounding neighborhoods in the Conejo Valley, you may not be aware of this beloved Halloween tradition. A cul-de-sac, on the 5700 Block of Hempstead Drive, does it HUGE for Halloween. The Hempstead Halloween is famous that it attracts several thousands of visitors each year both from the Conejo and San Fernando Valleys and Los Angeles
The neighbors on the block take this 20 year old tradition very seriously. In fact, according to the website, “Themes are established each year and the residents carry out the design work, lighting, props, and music or sounds to make the surreal scenes come to life.”
So take your family for a night or terror and torture and then when you are sufficiently scared out of your gourd, head over for some comfort food at The Shoppes in Westlake Village. Sounds like the perfect evening. If you dare…
Note: From the City of Agoura Hills: To ensure the safety of residents and visitors to the annual Halloween festivities on Hempstead Drive, all access points will be closed (open only to pedestrians and/or residents who will need to present verifiable identification) on Monday, October 31, between the hours of 5 through 9 p.m. http://ci.agoura-hills.ca.us/
