Fright-Fabulous Fetes: Halloween 2016

This Halloween, there are plenty of occasions for kids and grownups alike to celebrate with a spooky-good time, from traditional bashes like Devil’s Night to a brand-new Spooky Soirée at The Gardens Mall.


To start the festivities off, The South Florida Fair will continue its annual tradition of presenting Spookyville on Oct. 21-23 and Oct. 28-31. Highlights include trick-or-treating, costume parades, bounce houses, arts and crafts, a barrel train, a spooky house, and a big coloring wall. The cost is $10 per person, which includes carnival rides and games, and kids 2 and younger are free.


On October 22, the Loggerhead Marinelife Center will host its annual sea turtle–themed celebration, Turtleween, which features trick-or-treating with the loggerheads and costume competitions.

Kids of all ages are invited to enjoy a scary good time at the inaugural Spooky Soirée in the Grand Court at The Gardens Mall on October 28. This family-friendly event will include trick-or-treating at participating stores, a costume contest, haunted photo opportunities, and more.
