Have you been able to attend any of the Fall festivals around North Dallas?
Some are nearly every weekend!! Now it’s time to think about Halloween events just the kids. Halloween can be such a fun and exciting time. It’s hard when the actual day falls on a school day. So many churches and places now offer family friendly and safe events. Many of these are even free! I love attending some of these because not only is it fun and safe but we get some more wear out of our costumes!!
Here’s a look at some great Halloween events for kids happening in Collin County.
