For adults, head over to the San Juan Capistrano Society's Ghost Walk Tours. On a stroll down Los Rios Street, your guide will have some scary stories of monks, dogs, etc. Meet at the O'Neill Museum for the 6:30, 7 or 7:30 start on Sat Oct 27th. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids 12 and under. Must make reservations.
