Halloween night 8:00pm-8:15pm. Celebrate Halloween by stepping outside our door at 8:00 pm and howling like a coyote for 15 minutes while listening for your neighbors near and far howling back. It is fun to hear the howls and laughter and great if the wind cooperates - This would be a great year to have Placitas come out in full force and really let out those howls. Hope to hear you!
