You see it driving or walking through town. Ghosts and goblins appear everywhere. Spiders and monsters adorn front doors and shrubs. Halloween events are nearly ready. We have only 2 more weeks till the Big Day. Because there is so much going on for Halloween, you have many fun options. Let’s take a look so you can enjoy it to the fullest.
Children love Halloween. They dress up in costumes, go trick or treating and generally have a blast. As a result, start with their school. If you are not sure of what’s happening there, call the school to find out.
Next comes your town. Check out your town’s website and call the recreation department. If you don’t know your town’s site address, the Bergen County government website has every town’s website on it. Just click here to get yours.
After this, you might also look at your neighborhood. Some neighborhoods have Halloween events themselves. For example, there are Halloween block parties. If you don’t know what website to use for this, I can give you some ideas. Contact me through my site or call me at 201-741-8490.
