Pat Harris' second grade class at La Cañada Elementary School offer their thoughts on the season to Valley Sun readers: What I Like About Fall? -The leaves fall down. The leaves are yellow, orange and red. You can play in the leaves. I go to Yosemite. I am going to a football game. Fall is my favorite time of year. My teacher is the best teacher. She teaches me lots of math. (Matthew Gilmour) - Fall is fun! In fall, it is exciting because school starts. We can pick out some costumes.

Halloween was in the air at La Cañada Elementary and Paradise Canyon Elementary on Friday as both schools filled their playgrounds with pumpkins. Paradise Canyon had a pumpkin carnival that included face painting, candy and pizza sales and, of course, a yard full of pumpkins. Students walked carefully through the pumpkin patch as they chose the most perfect one. Hannah Sherman, 4 ½, wanted a small pumpkin. She already had her costume picked out for Halloween trick-or-treating.

Instead of houses, families went trick or treating store-to-store down Foothill Boulevard two days before Halloween on Friday. There was no need to knock as most shops left their doors wide open to greet everyone. The event, arranged by the La Cañada Merchants Connection, allowed the community to establish or strengthen relationships with their La Cañada business owners. "I am just trying to generate community events to get everyone in the community out on the street," said Sue Stranger, owner of Adobe Design and head of the La Cañada Flintridge Merchants Connection.

This year at the theme parks, the Halloween haunts are more fun than ever at Knotts, a little sparse at Six Flags, and family friendly at Disneyland. Any way you go, it’s bound to be a ghoulishly good time. Knotts Berry Farm hosts their annual Halloween Haunt again and this year is better than ever. Their numerous mazes and two haunted rides are mostly scary but some are just fun. The best maze in the park is definitely one called “Cornstalkers.” It revolves around the classic Wizard of Oz story, but when Dorothy returns home to Kansas, the Wicked Witch of the West follows her home and unleashes her minions on the corn fields and transforms every scarecrow into an evil one and brings the corn itself to life.
