About This Attraction:
# of Attractions: 1
For most of the year, the green house at 497 North 16th Street, in San Jose, California does not draw any special attention to itself. But on Halloween night, the front of the Craftsman-style house is transformed into a magical scene where hundreds of kids not only get treats, but also get treated to an experience they will never forget. Visitors are greeted by costumed characters, invited to choose treasures, and given an opportunity to have their picture taken to remember the evening. Whether there’s a twenty-five foot high pirate ship, a quarter-scale AT-ST from Star Wars or a Disney Princess Castle, the Albertson Halloween House always delivers an unforgettable experience. Since their first themed house in 2002, the Albertson Halloween House has become a must-visit destination for kids of all ages on Halloween night.
What? That’s right. You would think that with so many trick-or-treaters we would have to give out candy. But, in fact the opposite is true. It is actually less expensive to buy themed toys for the kids than to purchase candy in that volume. Kids love it. They get to walk away with two to three toys, which might include a compass, a pencil, a beaded necklace or some other toy based on that year’s theme.
A Safe Place
A few years ago, we got to become part of the San Jose Safe from the Start program, which provides glow necklaces to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night to keep kids safe as they walk around the neighborhood. We often give out glow necklaces to kids who come to the house. So, in addition to the the toys they get, kids get a fun costume accessory that also keeps them safe.
It Takes a Village
We have a community work day every year where our friends in the community come out to help paint. Whether it is a pirate ship, a castle or the Gotham City skyline, adults and kids alike get to help bring the house to life. Many of these same friends end up volunteering as costumed characters on Halloween night to help welcome guests to the house. Thanks to everyone who has pitched in and leant a hand!
Come On By!
We create the Albertson Halloween House because we want people to have as much fun at Halloween as we do. So, come on by! We’d love to see you!
