South Florida Halloween family events

South Florida Halloween family events

It's Halloween time!

Halloween 2011 is a week away, and I know more than a few people who will be celebrating all weekend! (Heck, I know folks who celebrate Halloween all month long!) There are several Halloween events in South Florida that are great for families. Here are just a few ideas.

Coral Springs
Coral Square Mall‘s Simon Kidgits Club offers a Halloween Spooktacular event on Saturday, Oct. 29, 1-3 pm. Enjoy live entertainment from Radio Disney, interactive games, goody bags filled with healthy treats and coupons, and giveaways of $50 Disney Gift Cards and a Build-A-Bear Workshop special edition candy corn bear. You can also choose to have professional Halloween portraits taken 11 am – 8 pm on Saturday and 1 to 8 pm on Monday, Oct. 31. Simon Kidgits events are free to members ($5 annual fee with additional membership perks). Regular trick-or-treating in the mall is free.

Boca Raton
Town Center at Boca Raton will host Mall-O-Ween on Monday, Oct. 31, 5-6:30 pm. Trick-or-treat at participating stores. Have a professional Halloween portrait taken for $10.

Miami Children’s Museum‘s Halloween Celebration will entertain and educate kids with trick-or-treating, crafts, “mad science” and games in MiChiMu fashion on Sunday, Oct. 30, noon – 5 pm. Admission fee applies.

Boynton Beach
Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market is known for its great pumpkin patch and good old-fashioned Halloween fun every weekend in October — and this coming Halloween weekend is no exception. Enjoy picking out your perfect pumpkin, hay rides ($2 per person), corn maze, haunted house ($5 per person), face painting and delicious treats for sale.

Boynton Beach Mall will present its annual Howl-O-Ween Haunt Monday, Oct. 31, 4 – 7 pm. Trick-or-treat around the mall, check out the face painting and bounce house and enjoy live entertainment.

Pompano Beach
Festival Flea Market Mall will have two days of Halloween celebrations, Saturday, Oct. 29 (1-4 pm) and Sunday, Oct. 30 (2-5 pm). There will be a costume contest, face painting and of course trick-or-treating.

Many churches in the area offer “Trunk or Treat” events for kids in their parking lots. Contact a local church to see when their events are — I saw one church having a “Trunk or Treat” event as early as this Thursday.

Also, many supermarkets have treats for kids.

Go in costume and take pictures!
