Around Town: Week of Oct. 23

Halloween is getting close and there are some fun things to do this coming weekend. If you feel like heading up to Amador Wine Country on Friday my recommendation is Borjon Winery. They'll be hosting their 1st ever Halloween Party: Vino De Los Muertos. Tickets are only $5 and it seems like it will be a good time.

Take the kiddos over to Fairytale Town for the 25th Anniversary Safe & Super Halloween. The theme this year is Harry Potter -- and if I had a kid I'd be there. Kids can trick or treat at 17 candy stations and search for Horcruxes. Plus other fun Harry Potter related stuff. It started on the 21st - but if you missed this weekend you can go October 28 or 29 too. Tickets are $9 for members and $12 for nonmembers.
The California Native Plant Demonstration Garden is hosting their own Dia de los Muertos inside the cemetery. Learn some things about native plants while enjoying a Halloween celebration. Face painting and all. More info on their Facebook page.

And a "non Halloween" activity this week - that you should really check out is the live Garibaldi show at the Crest. If you haven't seen Garibaldi create his artwork live -- its a must. It's only $15 - and really entertaining. I love this Audrey Hepburn one (to the right.) We went last year and I was so impressed.  Plus, he's a Sacramento native. Anyway, the way that his pieces come together as you watch (and enjoy some great music) is what is truely impressive. It's Oct. 26th.
