Halloween in Buffalo, Erie, Niagara
No one does Halloween like western New York!
When the our area puts its mind to it (so to speak), nowhere else can top the wonderfully inventive activities for kids. In almost no season is this more apparent than during Halloween. There are literally dozens of activities to choose from every weekend starting in late September and ending in late October.
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!
