AllAgesView – Officially Autumn


By Grace McNamara

What´s up, Modesto? It is officially Autumn, and my favorite month is here! Modesto is absolutely gorgeous in these colder months. There’s nothing better than witnessing the leaves transform into beautiful warm colors. With this spooky season coming up, I would like to share with you my favorite Halloween activities to do here in the valley! As you all know, I love going to movie theaters. Our very own State Theater is having an awesome lineup of Halloween movies this month! Starting October 7th, they will be showing a classic. Nightmare on Elm Street. They will also be showing more fun films like Coraline, Hocus Pocus, and Beetlejuice! Check out the state theaters website for my information.

The dragonfly art for life located on J street also has some fun activities planned for this fall season. “Sip and paint.” This is a super fun, family friendly activity to participate in. They have multiple events coming up and different art activities to paint, such as “Autumn pumpkins” and “pumpkin spice latte.” You can sip on your favorite coffee while painting an awesome Autumn picture. All supplies are included! You even get to work in a studio that is provided to you, as well as provided instructions. This is a great opportunity to spend time with family for friends while embracing your artistic abilities. Kids are just $15, and adults are $25.

Don’t forget that every Friday night at 7 pm there is music in the plaza! This is located downtown on 10th street. There’s entertainment and a wide variety of music. This only lasts until October 7th, so be sure to come before it’s too late. You won’t regret it. I hope you all have a wonderful October in this beautiful city, filled with lots to do!
