Some people outgrow their need for creativity and childlike curiosity and others become creatives. Sometimes I forget how much fun Halloween is for children. When I need to feed my inner child I find one of my many nieces and nephews and my best friend’s children. Family fun is always a good time. My greatest Halloween memories include going trick or treating as a Woodland Hills cheerleader in Penn Hills, my neighbors’ DIY haunted houses, and bobbing for apples (eww gross now that I think about it as an adult). Pittsburgh is full of family Halloween fun and I rounded up a few of them.
Kiss FM Halloween Party
Every year Kiss FM throws an all ages bash with Halloween costumes and live music. This year’s headliners include Hey Violet, Rita Ora and Daya. (Tickets)
Free Kids Halloween Party
As a Braddock native I’m a little biased but if you live in the neighborhood opt for checking out a fundraiser instead of going trick or treating.
Night at the Museum
I’m sure for legal reasons they can’t call this event Night at the Museum but man it sounds cool. Go trick or treating and explore the museum all for the price of admission. (Tickets)
Kennywood created something for the kids that are too young for Phantom Fright Nights. Happy Hauntings encourages kids to dress up, decorate pumpkins, and enjoy the rides. Saturday and Sunday afternoons in October Kiddieland is open from 12pm-4pm for fall festival fun. Use promo code OMGItsJustDaehhBlog17 or click here to save money on tickets.
Of course this isn’t everything it’s just a few ideas to get your gears spinning. Halloween is awesome for children and the adults alike.
