The weekend before Halloween, Shannon and I decided to take our 6 kids to Pumpkins on the Pier in Pismo Beach.  This was the first time we all had been to this city activity.  We got all 6 of our kids dressed in their Halloween costumes and headed to the activity.

When we got there, it took some time to park our Tahoe.  Once we found parking, we headed to the pier and waited in line to get the trick-or-treating bags for the kids.  Unfortunately, they had just run out of pumpkins about 3 minutes before we got up to the window.  We thanked them for the trick-or-treat bags and walked around the pier.  There were a lot of people there!

There were decorations and a picture spot for those who just arrived at the event.  The kids loved the Halloween feel of it!  I would say a lot of the activities were wrapping up around 11:30 am (when we got there), so we hung out for a little bit and then hit the stores for trick-or-treating.

We walked through the stores with the kids and they trick-or-treated at each store.  They got candy, stickers and some other fun stuff.  The best treat they got was money at the Pismo Beach Subway.  Boy, were they excited!  We look forward to next year and will definitely be arriving earlier!  A big thanks to Pismo Beach for putting on this fun activity!
