“Delicious autumn!   My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.”

Enjoy That Halloween Thrill

Autumn is upon us and there’s nothing better than getting bundled up in sweaters and hats and crunching through fallen leaves while sipping on a travel mug of hot cider. Well the leaves in El Dorado County are more fun to crunch when you’re on your way to a Halloween event with your family and friends. Enjoy all that Placerville has to offer, including bright and crunchy autumn leaves, cool air, and warm smiles.

Contact me, John Conca, 530-306-3494, if you are searching for a home in Placerville or anywhere in El Dorado county, or if you are ready to sell your home. I’d be happy to discuss your options with you. Find new Placerville listings here.

Thursday, October 31st

5-7:30pm at the Pollock Pines Community Church
6361 Pony Express Trail

My family enjoyed this event last year. It will not disappoint! If you live in and around Pollock Pines, you’ll notice you get a nice crisp view of the stars at night. The reason that is possible is the same reason trick-or-treating is difficult here- minimal and usually no street lights. It’s also a new moon this Halloween, so be sure you enjoy it somewhere with lights so you can at least see each other’s costumes! This event is fun and safe and does not disappoint. For more information call 530-644-2133.
