October Calendar

The spirit of Halloween was indeed ALIVE in Santa Clara this year. What a great turnout of festive participants. What a fun evening! There were good witches, bad witches, gypsies and butterflies frolicking to the great music of DJ Gerri Foley. Many did not dress in costume and that’s fine, too. We were all a part of the good spirits of the evening. Apologies to those who were not included in the photographs below as we were unable to photograph everyone. We hope to catch you next year.
