Halloween is almost here and many Central Coast residents are excited to celebrate.

“They're going to do caramel apples, they're decorating the trampoline with homemade Halloween decorations,” said parent Jerry Bool.

With Halloween being on Saturday, many celebrations will look very different this year.

Things like at-home celebrations are something many will be participating in due to safety concerns because of the pandemic.

"So we are just going to have some family, very selected and celebrate the birthday and Halloween and I'm looking forward to dressing up," said Michael Velasquez.

"For the kids, we have a lot of cousins in the same neighborhood and so we are always together so we are just keeping it small and close just so we can stay safe and keep the babies safe so we are just doing some trick or treating in the backyard," said Paige Cosand.

Santa Barbara County Public Health officials strongly encourage alternatives to trick-or-treating such as trunk or treating, car parades, or planning a socially distanced costume parade.
