Halloween Haunt at California’s Great America

Halloween Haunt at California’s Great America, the Bay Area’s premier Halloween event, will begin terrifying guests on Sept. 21. Scares take place on select Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights through Oct. 28.

New for 2018, the Tooth Fairy maze will lead guests on a terrifying journey through the twisted world of a dental fiend in search of loose teeth who drags people from their bedrooms and into a nightmarish dentist’s office. Madame Marie’s Massacre Manor, a perennial guest favorite maze, will be reimagined in 2018 as Madame Marie’s Blackout. The lights have been turned off in Madame Marie’s mansion, and guests are given only a dim flashlight to lead their way through her cursed halls. Also new in 2018 is Ripper’s Revenge scare zone, where guests will encounter a mob of villains who are dead set on taking over old-town London—and running off any guests who stand in their way.

The California Indian Photographs of Dugan Aguilar

Ranging from portraits of military veterans, basket makers, and dancers to meditative landscapes, Aguilar’s work documents—and contributes to—the perseverance and renewal of Native California’s living, vibrant cultures.
