Marketing Your Halloween/Seasonal Promotions

It’s that time of year when hotels offer fall packages, restaurants mix in pumpkin and other autumnal season items into food and drinks, and many businesses put out their best ideas to drive Halloween-related business.

So what is your business doing?   We’d like to hear from you.

Is you’re a spa infusing pumpkin into your treatments?    Do you have a dish that features flavors of the fall season?   Are you offering customers a Halloween package or having a Halloween event in Newport Beach?

The Visit Newport Beach Public Relations Team is looking for all things unique and exciting this season — and we want to hear from you if you own or manage a Newport Beach restaurant, are a Newport Beach chef, or have a Halloween promotion or event at your business.

Here is a look at some of the Halloween events on our radar in the next month:

Family Fright Zone Fridays  — ExplorOcean at Balboa’s Fun Zone hosts ghostly creatures take to fright, on this spooky family Fun Zone night.  Experience costumes, pumpkins and candy, Oh My! Trick-or-treat at the Fun Zone as witches, wizards and ghosts come to life on the waterfront. Enjoy spooky storytelling, kooky crafts, face painting, magic shows and live entertainment for the entire family.

Costume Surf Contest — Blackie’s Classics will host its 9th annual costume surf contest north of the Newport Pier.  Go out and ride alongside former Presidents, superheroes, mermaids, ghosts and whole host of funny characters.

Roger’s Gardens is currently hosting a Halloween Boutique and Night Gallery Wander down the central corridor of our Night Gallery, accompanied by chilling spirits, gawking at one-of-a-kind wonders from a collection of Halloween artists. Every corner, nook, and cranny of our four eerie art installations titled Cabinet of Curiosities, Mad Inventor’s Workshop, Day of the Dead, and Witching Hour overflow with creepy treasures to delight the most devoted of Halloween’s faithful.

We are making pitches to media outlets regarding all things Halloween and autumn, and we’d love to pitch your event, theme, or dining or cocktail creation to them.
