If there's one thing Los Altos does well, it's celebrate holidays and throw parties. Halloween is no exception. As the start of the holiday season, the town has a tradition of hosting an in-town trick-or-treat event designed just for kids.
This Friday from 12-4PM in downtown, kids can walk into particpating stores and collect a piece of candy in teh grand tradition of Halloween. In addition, from 2-4PM there is a street party at Second and State streets usually with face painting, balloons, crafts, kids rides, and more. It's a lot of fun, especially for younger kids new to the whole Halloween experience.
Afterward, there are plenty of restaurants to visit so your stay in Los Altos can be extended a little longer.
This event, as with many others in downtown Los Altos, is hosted by the Los Altos Village Association. I've been a member of this group for a while and appreciate their on-going efforts to support downtown businesses and the community. For more information, visit their website.
