The annual Halloween Extravaganza will take over the Calle Real Shopping Center once again. This safe and sane Halloween celebration is complete with a tunnel of terror at the Pet House, a holiday train ride, face painters, twisty balloon creations, three exciting bounce houses, an obstacle course, a photo booth and Macaroni Kids.  

Baroness Jewelers always has fun with boiling cauldrons and witches costumes, and kids love to climb on and explore the AMR ambulance, Sheriff’s cruiser and the Santa Barbara County fire truck.

Last year over 1,200 children participated, collecting treats from each merchant while showing off their costumes in and out of nearly every store in the center.

Bring the kids to the Calle Real Center Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015, from 3–6 p.m., between Patterson and Fairview, for an exciting Halloween celebration. Visit our many participating merchants for another wild trick-or-treat adventure.  

Lots of merchants will be in costume and will have their stores outfitted in scary decorations. There will be plenty of candy and goodies for the kids. 

The so-fun-you'll-scream event is sponsored by The Calle Real Merchants with media sponsorship assistance by ​Noozhawk,, K-lite 101.7, KFYZ Z94.5 and Santa Barbara Sentinel.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
