Still, Halloween is not canceled! In fact, your costume better be ready to wear.
Celebrating at home is always an option, but even before the pandemic, parents were looking for ways to celebrate this spooky time of year in a new way. There are lots of events going on in the Sacramento and Stockton regions.
These events, which include candy giveaways and trunk or treats, offer safe alternatives to the typical door-to-door candy crusade you may be used to.
