Halloween weirdness

So first of all, I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween! I hope everyone gets plenty of tricks and treats and whatever you do today you are surrounded by friends and family for all kinds of safe and sane spooky silliness!

While I was poking around today to see if there was any local spooky haunt I might want to give a go this evening I happened on a great post at a new blog I discovered: Weird Fresno. I already did Hobb’s Grove earlier this month but was looking for something inside Fresno proper. That’s when I found this post.

Apparently, Weird Fresno is dedicated to all things spooky and weird locally and in the Central Valley. I thought it was a cool concept and wanted to pass the site along. We also added it to our Links Page today. We love local stuff! So again, Happy Halloween everyone, and may the spooky gods smile down on you with a good scare tonight (evil laugh here)! 🙂

Spooky season is here!

Today marks the beginning of one of my most favorite times of the year. Fall is coming and we are definitely feeling the cooler weather in the Central Valley. We are now on a 30-day march to Halloween and we already have our passes for Fright Night at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Fall is also the time that the NBA season starts (this year it’s on Oct 24th) but that will be another blog later in the month.

I wanted to give a shout out to one of the true gems in the Central Valley: Hobb’s Grove. I’ve been a fan of good horror films for ever and I love a good haunted house too. I’ve been to several, all up and down the state, and I can honestly say that this spook fest is probably one of the better ones in all of California. Hobb’s grove routinely provides a higher quality ghoulish experience and if you have never been you definitely need to check it out. There is always plenty of parking and it’s a short 20-25 minute drive to Sanger. They usually a host a haunted house, a haunted hay ride, and a haunted forest. There’s also tons of food options and plenty of hot chocolate available so you can make an entire evening out of the whole scary experience!

Hobb’s Grove is located at 14265 E Goodfellow Ave, Sanger, California 93657. Opening night this year is this Friday, October 4th and they are running an early bird type price break special for the first four night. That would be Friday, October 4th. Saturday, October 5th. Sunday October 6th and the following Thursday, October 10th. If you want more info on this great local “haunt” then make the jump! Here is a map for your added convenience:
