We have put on our costumes and headed into the dark of night with a full moon to search haunted houses, cemeteries, and pumpkin patches for ghosts, goblins, and skeletons to come up with the best Halloween events for families with kids. Caution: many of these events are Soooo scary that they are not recommended for children under 8. Suggest you call ahead to confirm age appropriateness.
