This weekend is Halloween weekend and there are a ton of events happening in San Diego. Here are my picks for things to do this weekend with the family! We will be hitting one of these activities on Saturday but Sunday is reserved for the 6th Annual Chu Family Pumpkin Carving Contest! Our annual carving contest has gotten more and more serious over the years and this year I'm determined to win with my giant squid design. Can't wait to post photos!!

Halloween Family Festival Day at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion - 1:30PM-3:00PM - Balboa Park
The Spreckels Organ Society invites little ghosts and ghouls of all ages and their families and friends to a free, special Halloween-themed Family Festival Day at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park. Enjoy some spooky tunes and pumpkin carols played on the historic Spreckels Organ by former San Diego Civic Organist Jared Jacobsen and the San Diego Children’s Choir. Move to the music with hula hoop dancing by Spin Yang Hoops, strut in a kazoo parade, sit right up on stage for an up-close and personal look at the organist in action, then visit activity booths by San Diego Junior Theatre, the San Diego Civic Youth Ballet, the San Diego Humane Society and the San Diego Choristers Guild. Bring your friends and your friendly pets on leash. Costumes welcomed!
None of these events excite you? Then we can't be friends anymore. Just kidding! Visit the events calendars on Red Tricycle or San Diego Family Magazine for more Halloween fun.
