Can’t-Miss Halloween Fun

Halloween is more than just spooks and scares. It’s filled with fun for the kids and the entire family! Katy Mann, from Indy with Kids, has a huge list of family friendly Halloween events but since we can’t all visit every single one of them, she’s sharing a few extra special ones.

Katy asked her kids which events they want to attend and here are the five they’ve all agreed on — either because they have been favorites in the past or because the online description got them so excited!

Boo Bash in Fishers is tonight, 6:30-8:30pm at the Nickel Plate Amptheater. This all ages event has over 40 trick or treat stops + raffles and prizes.

Friday and Saturday at Hubler Chevrolet is the free Child Safety and Pumpkin Event. There are free activities and shows for kids, face painters, bouce houses, clowns ballon artists and a rock climbing wall. There will be a ton of food and candy in the showroom plus kids can have their free child ID kit made while they are there.

The Halloween Moonlight Egg Hunt at Broad Ripple Park on October 28th is a top pick every year. Kids ages 4-9 will search for monster eggs by moonlight. The eggs have prizes and candy inside. Expect games, crafts and refreshments. Dress appropriately for the weather and activities and bring a flashlight. If you wear a costume, you get an extra special prize! The cost is $10 and pre-registration is required.

Trick your Trunk in Franklin on October 29th is a great community effort. Cars will line Main Street and kids will trick or treat from trunk to trunk and then everyone is invited to the historic Artcraft Theatre for a Halloween movie.

The biggest event around seems to be the Safe Halloween event at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. This event is free, rain or shine. Expect to pay a $5 parking fee and there is a shuttle available from parking to the event.
