This is the Halloween for something fun with others.

As you gear up for trick or treaters, pumpkin carving, candy bars, dressing up and front-yard decorations, you might be thinking about other spooky possibilities your circle of family and friends will enjoy.

From haunted houses to costume parties, there’s something for everyone in El Dorado County this Halloween.

Costume party

If you want to make up for last year’s missed Halloween by going all out on your costume, here’s your opportunity.

Dress up and look scary good alongside your pals at these gatherings:

  • The Risky Biscuits, hosted by The Divided, will be part of the annual Halloween party. It mixes live music and flashy getups. So bring your best costume and a pair of comfortable shoes. Playlist will feature mix of Americana, blue grass and country.
  • Check out Poor Red’s annual Halloween party (Oct. 27). The evening includes a costume contest with cash prizes.
  • Halloween Pizza Dance Party at Hart 2 Hart Vineyards. There’ll be all-you-can eat wood fired pizza and an outdoor night club. Get tickets before they disappear into the night.

Halloween melodrama

Step into the past for exciting performances with characters who will invite your cheers, boos and hisses at the Olde Coloma Theatre.

You and your entire family will laugh and enjoy live music, fresh popcorn and the antics of a preposterous villain.

The shows include “Mrs. Waldecott: Ghost Hunter” and “Things That Go Burp in the Night.”

Haunted house

From delicious produce, ciders, pies and wine, Apple Hill is also in the business of giving a good scare.

Mill View Ranch invites you into their new Haunted House if you dare. For something relaxing, you can create a piece of pumpkin art.

Attraction is open until 10 p.m. on weekends.

Boo Bash

The Cameron Park Community Center is hosting a Halloween Boo Bash, featuring a “trunk or treat,” floating pumpkin patch, crafts, food and so much more.

The free event will also have a cake walk and a costume contest for the entire family.
