Halloween activities in the Richmond and Sunset districts
Still looking for something to do for Halloween? There’s plenty going on in the Outer Richmond and Outer Sunset (and slightly beyond). And if you’re doing some grown-up partying on Halloween night, don’t forget you can get a free cab ride home instead of driving.
