Halloween at the Hiller Aviation Museum - With the Flying Witch!
Celebrate Halloween in a whole new way this year: On October 29th and 30th, The Hiller Aviation Museum in nearby San Carlos hosts its Halloween Haunted Hangar, a day of fright and flight. Explore the Museum’s Gallery, build a creepy craft and join the festivities at the Aerial Carnival. Each day ends with the Hiller’s flying witch, who arrives by helicopter to drop her Halloween pumpkin. There will be candy, prizes and surprises. Add to the fun by coming in costumes.
In addition to its regular exhibits, this weekend on October 22nd the Hiller hosts a gathering of homebuilt planes (X-Planes) built by Bay Area flight enthusiasts. Definitely a worthwhile trip for your children if they're into building things!
Both events are free with museum admission. For more information, hours, admission costs (get a $1 coupon), and directions click here.
