Question of the Week: "What are the things you love the most about October in Santa Cruz?"

Rachel Goodale, 24, Server at Mad Yolks on Pacific

“The changing weather that inspires people to change and explore new things. I get “Fall Fever” when the dry leaves rustle on a chilly morning but then it’s warm in the afternoon. I also love the Halloween Parade Downtown, when the kids come out early, so excited in their costumes.”

Phil Melahn, 48, Engineering Manager

“I really love the smell of smoke in the cold air and cooking over a safe fire pit outdoors. And of course, the changing colors of the leaves.”

Mackenzie Maxwell, 16, Student

“The way the beach feels, being at the ocean in October is my favorite. I love overcast skies, and the orange leaves in October.”

Morgan Stinson, 16, Student

“Definitely Halloween, and everything about the general feel of October, it’s my favorite month.”

Rick Allan, 60, Woodworker

“How Halloween reminds me of when I was a child. Going round and about and seeing how people decorate their homes, seeing the kids out. My wife loves scary movies, but I can’t watch ‘em.”
