‘Tis the season for bright orange pumpkins, ghoulish goings on and folks all over America dressing up in kooky costumes – it’s Halloween! This quintessentially American holiday, which is officially on October 31, is probably the most festive of them all, and to help our guests get into the spooky spirit, HI USA hostels have a number of fun things going on for young and old. Whether you’re a first-time Halloweener, or you’ve been trick-or-treating since you were knee high to a zombie’s eye, you can count on having a good time with fellow adventurers all over Northern California.
The first thing Marc Edwards did when he arrived at HI Sacramento hostel to start as General Manager was rearrange the tables spread around the hostel’s dining room so they were together as a long, single communal dining table. Today, Marc is still devoted to making the old Victorian mansion feel like home for guests, and a place for locals to be part of the travel community, with events like the monthly Bike-In Movie.
