Scream therapy? Haunted shows and attractions return to the Bay Area for Halloween

During October of 2020, Halloween was devoid of neighborhood trick-or-treating and celebrated at home, likely involving the streaming of one, two or many horror films. In other words, indoor entertainment compensated for the lack of social and outdoor options resulting from COVID-19 restrictions. This year, though, marks the in-person return of the standard and beloved spooky fare: Halloween-themed parks, haunted houses and shows. And the companies that produce these creepy-fun events are more than ready to frighten and entertain all who dare to attend.
