11 Not-so Scary (Mostly Free!) Halloween Events this October in Orange County

October 13, 2016


All of us at Helpkin hope you have some wicked fun this Halloween! Halloween in Orange County can be a wonderful time for your family and children. From pumpkin patches, magic shows, to petting zoos... there are a ton of FREE and cheap events this October. From Irvine, Santa Ana, Orange, Huntington Beach, Mission Viejo or more... we hope to have found an event close to you. 


Look out for the private beta launch of the Helpkin app coming soon so you can start saving hundreds each year (Helpkin is the app for parents to save money on childcare by trading babysitting duties with people they trust)! We will only be releasing our first version to Southern California residents. Subscribe to our mailing list on the homepage to get on the list. Happy Halloween! :)
