Nowadays, Halloween costumes are not cheap. Parents and guardians would like for their children to get a good amount of use out of the costumes they purchase because, most likely, they will not fit them next year. Before the spooktacular trick-or-treat neighborhood events on Oct. 31, there are more than a dozen local events for families to run amok (amok, amok, amok) and get some sweet treats. A majority are free, while some have an entrance fee. So grab a pumpkin bucket to collect some candy and head out to these fun family Halloween events.
