As we continue to creep up (Creep! Get it?!) on the Halloween holiday, many among us are already making plans for taking our kids trick-or-treating. Now, if we might say so ourselves, we’ve fashioned this into high art at Prestige Imports, with costumes that truly blur the line between scary and downright hilarious. But what should you know before October 31st arrives, as it applies to planning events for your kids? Here are a few Halloween and trick-or-treating events for Miami for you to consider.
Halloween Trick-or-Treating | Miami, FL 2016
For some of us, the idea of trudging our kids across countless city blocks for candy isn’t totally ideal. Believe us, we understand. Instead, you could head to Zoo Miami, where you’ll find Halloween-themed attractions, carousel rides, and Dr. Wilde’s Creepy Haunted House.
This event, taking place in Pinecrest Gardens and benefitting the Paws 4 You animal rescue, does a nice job of appealing to all that kids love. There are games to be played with your dogs, a separate Doggie Fun Zone, and even a separate trick-or-treating area.
If you’re downtown in Miami, you certainly know all that Bayside Marketplace has to offer. On Halloween night, from 5pm to 7pm, kids (and kids-at-heart) can enjoy trick-or-treating, live music, street performers, and prizes for the best costumes in attendance.
Coral Gables is certainly known as one of the most welcoming places for trick-or-treating in the greater Miami area, and on October 31st, they welcome one and all for a kids costume contest, a dog costume contest, arts and crafts, and spooky storytelling at Books & Books.
