Are you ready for a fun-filled weekend of OC family Halloween events?  This Sunday, October 30th, 2011 from 8am – 11am you will have a chance to bring your kids to the MOST FUN Halloween party ever and give back at the same time at the 20th annual Pumpkins & Pancakes Halloween Extravaganza at South Coast Plaza.

What I especially love about this event is with every ticket purchase, you will be able to choose whether you would like your money to benefit one of three amazing Orange County charities helping local children: Casa Orange CountyCHOC Children’s Foundation and Orangewood Children’s Foundation.

I have gone to this event several times and it is one of my favorite seasonal family events in OC.  At it, you will find the Macy’s and Crate and Barrel wing of South Coast Plaza completely transformed into a multi-level rocking Halloween party!

You can enjoy a delicious gourmet pancake breakfast by one of my favorite breakfast spots, Plums Café and Catering, along with music for dance parties, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon artists, arts & crafts, caricature drawings, professional photos, hair feather artists, surprise characters, silent auction, opportunity prizes and more!

All kids dress in their costumes, so make sure to dress them up and take advantage of all the great photo ops!

Tickets are $30 per person if purchased by noon TODAY (10/28) and $35 at the door. Children under two years old are free.

For more information, visit the Pumpkins and Pancakes 2011 website.

Have a great weekend everyone! See you back on Monday!

Pumpkins & Pancakes Event Benefiting CASA

I am very excited to tell you about a special Halloween event coming up on Sunday, October 24th, 2010 at South Coast Plaza {Crystal Court} called Pumpkins & Pancakes benefiting CASA.  My family has gone the last two years in a row and it is SO MUCH FUN!  And I have 4 tickets to giveaway! Keep reading!

Not only is it an amazingly fun Halloween event for your kids, but the money raised helps local abused and neglected children through an amazing non-profit organization called CASA (or Court Appointed Special Advocates) in Orange County. And,  CASA has been kind enough to offer Tiny Oranges 4 tickets to giveaway to this FUN event, so make sure to read below on how to enter to win!

The event takes over almost the entire Crystal Court wing of South Coast Plaza from 8:00am – 11:00am before the mall opens.  Spread out over the three levels, there are tons of fun things kids of all ages will LOVE.   One of our favorites is the incredibly YUMMY breakfast catered by Plums Cafe.  They provide the “pancakes” in Pumpkins and Pancakes and much more with a beautiful gourmet breakfast buffet.

Then there are a ton of activities!  You will find a costume parade (make sure to dress your little ones in their costumes), arts & crafts, dance party, face painting, a live animal show, silent auction for CASA and so much more.

I love that this special event provides OC families with the opportunity to treat your kids to a super fun Halloween party and an excuse to break out their costumes early, but most importantly, by attending you will also be supporting this organization and helping kids not as blessed as your own.  And that in itself is just a FEEL GOOD sort of event for the entire family!
