Tons and Tons of Halloween Events and Alternatives!

WNY is filled with fun ways to celebrate Halloween!  KidsOutAndAbout has compiled this guide to help families enjoy the holiday to the fullest.  Our ideas  include places to Trick or Treat inside and outside in safe, public places, Halloween parties and celebrations, haunted tours and hayrides as well as a couple of Trunk or Treat events where kids can trick or treat out of the trunks of decorated vehicles!  We also know that some families prefer to entertain their children on October 31st without including Halloween, so our Big List also includes a few Halloween Alternative celebrations going on in the Buffalo area as well.

If we've missed an event, please send me an email so that we can add it to our list!
