Ghoulishly grand adventure aboard the Haunted Railroad

Ardenwoods spooky witchÑalong with the silly pirates, ghosts, goblins, giant pumpkins, and the Chance GangÑwill once again be haunting the woods at Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont. Climb aboard the Haunted Railroad for a fun ride through the dark forest of Ardenwood. The entire family will enjoy the ghoulishly grand, roundtrip ride on the haunted rails of the Ghost Train.

The Haunted Railroad is a spooky (not scary) train ride that will appeal to children 12 years of age and under. Billy Bones says it best, The Haunted Railroad was designed so that families can have a nighttime adventure appropriate for young children. We want children of all ages to have fun!

The Haunted Railroad operates on two weekends beginning Friday, October 21. Trains will depart every 30 minutes beginning at 7 p.m. with the last train departing at 9:30 p.m. (9 p.m. on Sunday nights)

Newark honors loved ones at Day of the Dead

Colorful altars, sugar skulls, flowers and music will liven up Old Town Newark this Sunday at their sixth annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration. Families will gather to celebrate and connect with the spirits of their friends and family who have moved on from this world.

There will be beautifully decorated Catrinas, the costumed female skeletons made famous by Mexican illustrator Josˇ Guadalupe Posada who created his famous work of art La Calavera Catrina (The Elegant Skull) meant as a parody of the Mexican upper-class. Catrinas are now a prominent part of Day of the Dead celebrations.

Newark Councilwoman Sucy Collazo organized the celebration, which is sponsored by Avanzando (advancement), a non-profit organization created by community leaders to provide scholarships and promote education and culture for Latino students.

Artist Mateo Leon Valencia will begin the ceremony with his living art exhibit, Pan de Vida (Bread of Life), by building an altar made with offerings to the spirits. This altar is meant to represent all of the people. While burning sage to cleanse evil spirits, he will perform a universal blessing on the local land, water, and all living creatures.

Rubiks elite ready to rumble in Hayward

Elite cubers in the Bay Area are returning to Hayward City Hall to show off their incredible cube solving skills at Rubiks Rumble 2016, an exciting event sponsored by the City of Hayward and Friends of Speed Cubers. Spectators are welcome and admission is free for non-competitors.

In 2015, the first year of the competition, approximately 1,000 competitors and spectators attended. The results of the competition were jaw dropping. The first place finisher, Riley Woo, solved the cube in just 9.08 seconds with second place competitor, Richard Jay Apagar, Jr., at 9.63, just fractions of a second behind. Woo recently competed in the National competition and accomplished the amazing feat of solving 18 cubes while blindfolded. He will be competing at Haywards Rubiks Rumble.

We thank the City of Hayward for their partnership, said April Chan, Founding Board Member of Friends of Speed Cubers. Friends of Speed Cubers aims to introduce cubing to diverse populations, and Hayward is the most diverse city in the U.S. The city has been supportive of not only the competition, but also by promoting cube solving to kids as a welcome respite from a world dominated by cell phones and other electronic devices.
