Trunk or Treats? October is filled with so many Halloween events for kids!
Have you been able to attend any of the Fall Festivals around North Dallas?
Now it’s time to think about Halloween events just for 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. We love attending some of these because not only is it fun and safe but we get some more wear out of our costumes to check out some of these decorated houses with scary outdoor robotics too!
These options are all places you can take your Kids for Safe Trick-or-Treating or Trunk-or-Treat events!
