Halloween is just around the corner but things are already getting spooky in the Yuba-Sutter-Colusa region. Here is a look at Halloween festivities happening around the area this weekend: 

On Friday evening, Rockabetty’s Hair Parlor will host the annual zombie walk event at the salon, 561 Second Street, Yuba City, from 4-9 p.m. 

The event will feature a haunted house, kids zone, makeup booth, zombie costume contest, vendors, a zombie bar and the Potato Patoto food truck. After attendees get outfitted with their scariest zombie makeup and attire, a zombie walk will be held from 6-7 p.m. 

For more information about the zombie walk, call 916-837-1172. 

The Teegarden Events Center, 713 Plumas Street, Yuba City, will also host a “Halloween: The Witch Trials at Teegarden,” event Friday and Saturday nights from 7-10 p.m. 

Walk through the portal of time and experience a working witch coven through the years, with  lighter scenes for the faint-hearted, as well as a ‘dreaded basement of fright’ for those who enjoy the blood and gore experience.

Tickets cost $20 for adults, $7 for children 11-12 and $5 for kids ages ten and under. 

The haunted house will also be open next weekend, Oct. 29-31, from 7-10 p.m.

On Saturday, the Yuba Sutter Marketplace will host a pumpkin decorating and children’s costume contest in the north court at the mall, 1215 Colusa Avenue, Yuba City, from 12-3 p.m.

Hector & Miguel characters will be here to oversee the event and costume contests, the Youngsters Gymnasts will perform and there will be a harvest juggler. 

Registration costs $10 per family or party of five people and includes three pumpkins. Space is limited so advanced registration is required for one of the three sessions.
