Something spooky’s in the air, and we hope you catch it! After weeks of round-ups filled with venues and celebrations, the hour has finally come.
We hope you’ve been able to use “Six Kid-Friendly Halloween Celebrations” and perhaps even attended an event or two.
Number 6 on the list will take place today at the American Museum of Natural History. Your young pirate or princess will have a great time trick-or-treating through hallways and exhibits on their way to their bounty of sweets.
Or, if marching in a parade or watching one live is more to your liking, drop by the Village Halloween Parade. Read our post, “Ghouls, Goblins & Gobs of Goodies” for more details.
If you didn’t have a chance to see it from our last post, here’s a YouTube video from the 2010 parade to get you prepped for the evening’s fun: Memento Mori: 2010 NY Village Halloween Parade. Enjoy!
If you’re up for a stroll, perhaps the road will lead you to the Fat Witch at Chelsea Market, where their “unwrapped” brownies are only $1.25 each during the witching hour (after 5 p.m.). Don’t miss it, cause these babies are too delicious to pass up.
Lastly, if you’ve opted to stay warm in the comforts of home as you and the kids pass out treats to the costumed young ones headed your way, perhaps it’s time to catch good ole Charlie Brown and his friends in that classic “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

Afterwards, if you’re all in the mood for some spooky fun, gather the kids amidst your Halloween décor, sit in a circle and ask everyone to close their eyes. Tell them a ghoulishly fun story from a book or make one up. Or, perhaps the kids can participate by taking turns telling their own tales. Don’t be surprised when the room fills with shrieks of delight.
Whatever you decide to do, Editorial Creatives wishes you and yours a safe and spooktacular Halloween. Now, go ahead and scare up some fun! Boo!
