Boo from the Richmond District!

Halloween is just around the corner, so we’ve put together a handy guide to spook-tacular events in the neighborhood. Stop by one of our haunted houses, enjoy the games at a community festival or enjoy trick or treating along Lake Street.

Speaking of festivals, two schools in the Richmond are having their annual Fall celebrations on Saturday. Pumpkins, dunk tanks, goldfish, BBQ, games, live music – a great outing for families and kids.

The 4-Star Theater has a couple of interesting movies playing this week. Tonight is the film “Harrison Montgomery”, a fictional story of a petty drug dealer trying to make ends meet in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.

On Friday night is “The Last Play at Shea, a documentary about the venerable New York stadium. It looks back on the amazing history of landmark events that the stadium has hosted like the Beatles, 1969 World Series, NY Jets playoff games and more.

All you pet lovers won’t want to miss Pet Pride Day in Golden Gate Park this Sunday. Bring your pooch, iguana, goldfish, cat, or any other animal you consider a pet to celebrate their wonderfulness. There’s a parade of pets, a pet trick contest, a pet halloween costume contest, vendors, performers and something called the Super Dooper Pooper Scooper Kiddie Goodie Scramble.
Due to the rainy weather predicted for Sunday, October 24, Pet Pride day has been canceled. Bummer!

We’re also getting artsy this weekend as SF Open Studios comes to the Richmond District. We’ve got over a dozen photographers, painters and mixed media artists who will prop open their studio doors to welcome in neighbors and art lovers. I’m mapping out a good walking route to hit as many as I can.

Have a great weekend everyone!
