Thank you for this list! We just moved here this past weekend and I wasn’t even sure where to look for family Halloween events. This came up easily in my internet search. Now I just have to figure out what we will do! :)

We are visiting from Australia and happen to be there over Halloween (from Oct 30 onwards)

If you would recommend one or two events to participate in for us, which would it be? My son is nearly 5 and will have a costume :)

Thank you so much for this list!!! I have an almost 3 year old and was wondering where to take her that didn’t involve candy (she can do the standard trick or treating when she’s older!) Your list was so helpful!
