D Street trick-or-treat.
Historic downtown Petaluma D Street is a district full of beautiful Victorian houses. The entire neighborhood gets into the Halloween spirit and people come from miles to trick-or-treat on this street. With roughly a mile of street to stroll, local trick-or-treaters delight in admiring the ghastly gravestones, witches, goblins and coffins adorning the houses in this kid- and dog-friendly neighborhood. The side streets are also great places to go. In 2014, this home on El Rose and B Streets had a "Satan High School Devils" theme.

McDonald Avenue in Santa Rosa.
This street draws a large crowd every year. The historic McDonald Mansion is on this street and the whole neighborhood participates in this Halloween celebration. The candy is top notch, but be warned: lines can get long! Many of the houses along McDonald Avenue were built in the 1800s and the homes’ age add an extra spooky vibe to Halloween festivities. The neighborhood is so spooky, in fact, that the popular horror movie “Scream” used the street for filming. The neighborhood is best for older trick-or-treaters as the ghastly celebration can be a little too intense for a younger crowd. Bring the family and join in the fun with the several thousand other trick-or-treaters along sprawling McDonald Avenue.
