Plenty of Halloween Activities and Treats for kids

Trick-or-Treat! Give me something good to eat! It’s that time of year to dress up in superhero and princess costumes, go trick or treating door to door to get as much candy loot as possible, and bob for apples.

Historically, Halloween is a festival of the dead. It was believed that the dead returned as ghosts and witches attempted to communicate with them. Today, we celebrate this family friendly, kid centered day with costume parades, pumpkin festivals, scary haunts and much more. Check out some of these non-scary activities for our favorite season of the year!
