Atlanta: Halloween Happenings

As Halloween approaches what do you plan to do with your little ghosts and goblins? These days a lot of families have steered away from the neighborhood door to door trick or treating, instead the opt for other fun opportunities.  I have been searching to see what types of things are out there and I found that there is lots to do from costume contests to festivals.  I have created a list of activities I think will be fun and exciting.

1.  Trick or Treat in the mall, on October 27th, 2012 Town Center at Cobb will hosts its annual Simon Kidgits Club “Boo Bash” from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. outside the Food Court Main Entrance (weather permitting) with interactive booths, bounce house, face painting and more, and a costume parade and other fun activities hosted by Radio Disney in Center Court.  Mall-wide trick-or-treating will also take place from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. on October 27. Participating stores will have orange signs in their windows. This is a FREE event.

2. Boo at the Zoo, October 20, 21, 27, 28th, 2012.  Zoo Atlanta brings back a family favorite with their event Boo at the Zoo.  Let your children go on an adventure through the whimsical Boo Zoo Town, where they can wear the costumes and see over 1500 animals, as well as get lots of treats, they will also get to see of their favorite characters.  This event is FREE for members of the zoo.  However,  if you are not a member you can buy your ticket here.

3. Pumpkin Festival at Stone Mountain Park, September 28th-October 28th, 2012 (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only). This is a non spooky event that the whole family can enjoy.  There will be a costume party, children can wear their costumes and  dance around the stage, learning new dances.   There will also be games including a family scavenger hunt, and before you leave don’t forget to visit the pumpkin patch and pick out that perfect pumpkin.  You can purchase your tickets here, in addition to the pumpkin festival activities your admission includes access to the park’s other attractions such as Geyser Towers, Mini Golf, Sky Hike and More.

What will you do to celebrate Halloween this year?  Leave me a comment and let me know

Have no clue what we are planning on doing. We usually play by ear. But there are so many great options out there.
