Once Upon a Scream

It’s almost Halloween! A time of year when it’s perfectly acceptable to walk around dressed up as a carrot, witch, or topical political pun. Even though the main event falls on a Tuesday this year, the entire month is rife with Halloween hootenannies. From haunted houses to themed theater, here are the best Halloween events happening in the Bay Area. Starred events can be booked on RushTix!
