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!
