Celebrating Halloween in Newport Beach has to be fun. The city embraces the holiday and then some. Balboa Island in Newport Beach is amazing! Max and I visited here once while we were dating and I had photos in an album from the trip. From that trip I knew that many people decorate their homes, but returning with kids I saw that the decorations were incredible! We spent a few hours walking the island taking everything in. This is definitely a new family tradition for us to head to Orange County during the Halloween season. I had such a hard time limiting the photos of what we saw- here are my favorites! Enjoy.
We met the owner of this house. She was great with the kids and quite nice. She told us that she puts up her decorations with help from just one friend and if she did hire a crew to help her it would take four – 8 hour shifts to put everything up! She also said that she would not finish decorating her yard by Halloween; yes, she has that much stuff! Interesting fact: her dinosaur (see first photo in this series) has a Facebook page named “Fred Raptor”.
Simple but excellent decorations

I have too many shots to share- but I believe you can sense what we saw and how into Halloween the people of Newport Beach are. Stop by if you are in the neighborhood- you won’t be disappointed!
